Women at Ciena:
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Ciena (United States)
Interviewrecruiter from their company reached out wanting to see if I had an interest in the role. I kindly asked what the base and OTE looked like. They would not disclose this even though I politely asked them a few times I wanted to know upfront. They wanted me to fill out an online application etc. I was not interested in jumping through hoops and wasting my time if they couldn't even give me a range of pay. RED FLAG. Avoided.
