    I worked at Tellabs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people - knowledgeable and good work ethics
    Amenities - parking garages for all, good cafeteria and other services
    Very clean facilities

    Cons

    Everytime the market hiccups they lay people off even though they are debt free.
    Obsessed with outsourcing everything to other countries just because they are cheaper workforce. But you get what you pay for - high turnover which is disruptive - and the time difference makes it challenging to get things done in a timely fashion.
    Unrealistic deadlines that no-one takes seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start making realistic achievable deadlines which saves money and stress.
    Keep the U.S. talent and stop trying to save a buck with overseas help.

    Pros

    Environment is encouraging, they give the employees good benefits like stocks, annual bonus etc.

    Cons

    They are not very careful in acquisitions. They wasted 100s of millions of dollars in acquiring wichorus and shut it one year later.
