    I have been working at Tellabs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Santa Clara team is an exceptional team with highly talented individuals, the likes of which are slim in the valley. Great set of employees to work with and what a fun filled and challenging environment. Loved my 8 yrs of "working" there. This i Say because of the people and the product.
    great
    "Was" an ideal place to learn about the indust

    Cons

    The single star review is because no matter how good a product or engineering team you have it really does not matter when you don't have a visionary running the company.
    - Started off by lack of vision with top management and that never changed even with multiple restructuring CEO changes
    - Then things got slimy with BoD getting greedy.
    - Sales team has no clue. Does not know how to sell a product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice can only be given to people who are listening. Everyone including the management knows that they are preparing to shut it down. Anything else that is conveyed to employees or shareholders is sadly not the truth.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
