GENBAND is a fast paced and exciting company to work for.

Sales Operations Manager (Former Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I worked at GENBAND full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPeople, leadership, market position. GENBAND's focus on R&D drives new market opportunities and positions GENBAND to remain a leader in its segment.

ConsShrinking telecommunications market which keeps GENBAND in a consolidation vs, growth mode, competitors are plentiful in many of software and hardware products that GENBAND offers.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to find ways to outpace the competition

No substance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at GENBAND full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood life-work balance. Competitive benefits. Friendly and respectful people.

ConsThere is no product delivery behind the marketing. Marketing is misguided and not aligned with what they offer. All products are at least 10 to 15 yrs old. The Nortel clicks are getting formed again.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Professional work environment with lots of opportunity for growth and challenge

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Frisco, TX

I have been working at GENBAND full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFollowing the Nortel aquisition, the company has morphed its identity and roadmap to be relevant in the market. Current momentum with new strategy and partnerships like Samsung are validating the new vision. CEO is very honest and upfront on industry trends, company progress and implications. The company's focus on employees and philanthropy makes it different than most.

ConsTurbulent times over the past few years as the company absorbed the Nortel division and determined direction in changing market. Seems like leadership has handled with momentum building - bonuses paid to employees in Q1 a great sign!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on the employees and keep the momentum going.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The team is focused on NGN and getting positive results globally with new major wins. Nothing should stop us!

Sales (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at GENBAND full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNew "Making Networks Smarter" vision is resonating with customers and prospects. New products will take the company to new heights with new partners and new markets. CEO's vision and leadership has taken GB from nothing to a industry leader. Perspectives13 customer event was First Class event for customer, partners, industry and financial analysts. Customers loved the message from the top of GENBAND.

ConsYou can easily do GENBAND 24/7 if you'd like but it's not demanded or required for you to be a success. The start-up mentality still lives on in a 2200 person organization which is healthy.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the focused attention and investment on the next generation portfolio. We are on a roll with them and with new F5 and Samsung partnerships we have new ways of winning in wireless than ever before!
