    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for outside vendors to make a fortune with incompotent Directors and Managers who don't know what they're doing and have excess budget to spend.

    Cons

    Incompetent and self-serving leadership at the Director and Vice President levels. This place is a classic stovepipe organization. Ship is beginning to sink.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stealing. Resign and leave - oh wait, no one will hire you.

    Good place to work if you turn a blind eye to how the company is run

    Pros

    You get to work on advanced technology (ROADM, OTN, Data services). You have some latitude in how you execute your work. Acceptance of new process ideas.

    Cons

    Overtime is expected for some disciplines. Engineering/planning are very silo'd. No clear communications what the customer is really looking for in a product. Very political; some managers/directors very protective of their turf, at times to the detriment of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors should be in more working meetings (cross discipline meetings) to ensure their goals are being met and to see their team in action. Some would be very surprised about their team's performance.

    Better stay away - lot of politics, no challenging work, overall very poor place to work.

    Pros

    -Has okay benefits.

    -Holidays and vacations were good.

    Cons

    -Extremely bad employee moral.

    -Lots of management here that's been here for decades (some of them a Quarter-century) and most are incompotent or clueless.

    -Horrible place for younger workers due to non-promotion of internal qualified candidates in favor of nepotism (which is rampant).

    -The most toxic work culture I've ever seen (turf wars, intimidation, widespread anger and frustration, bully style management who hire scapegoats, dysfunctional meetings, completely incompetent HR staff).

    -Overall this place is just awful and I would recommend you look elsewhere (especially if you are young).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company does have the technology and key employees to make it an outstanding company, senior management and director levels are the issue. The company ran much better many years ago prior to the so-called leadership what is in place now.

    Current Employee - Director in Richardson, TX

    Pros

    Excellent family and work life balance, while still be in the technology field. Good career development and management skills. Legendary quality.

    Cons

    Can be slow to enter the market, but once it does it performs well in the market. There is bureacracy, but, then again, it is a large, multi-national, multi-$billion company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep steering it in the direction you are currently taking it. The expansion is having a dramatic, positive effect on the employees.

    Pros

    Great facility to work in and everyone is friendly and helpful. They have good products and their engineering is the best.

    Cons

    There was to much work for to few people to do the work. Software tools to do the work were not the best and always changing making it difficult to be efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get control of services proposal tool and make it user friendly so the amount of work that is requested to to be completed is done efficiently.
