    I worked at Tellabs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Santa Clara office. The upper management did not have a clue, but the local team was managed very well.

    Cons

    Upper management is based in Naperville and did not understand how to operate in the Silicon Valley

    Advice to Management

    Too late now, company has been sold to private equity. Could have done so much more. Some great products, great engineers.
