    Best Work place and super friendly collegues

    Pros

    Work is challenging but your peers, mentor, colleagues will always help you to get your work done. Free food also helps you keep sane. I would recommend this company to everyone who wants to work in advanced technologies on optical networks. Everyone is an expert plus you will see humbleness everywhere. I enjoyed coming to the office every day.

    Cons

    Office location. If it was in some city like Boston, it would be really great for young people like me to get attracted to this company.

    Pros

    Very interesting work, always challenging and amazingly smart and helpful people to work. Best place I've worked at. Good benefits. Great leadership.

    Cons

    Sometimes decision making can take time ... but better than a big company. Base compensation is on the lower side. Don't have a defined career ladder.

    Pros

    Smaller in head count than its competitors but creates products that are more advanced than its competitors. One reason is that really innovative technical people have a lot to say in the direction that company takes, where the dollars is spent and new hiring takes place. It is very nimble, can react the business environment changes really fast.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Roles and responsibilities are being defined as they are practiced.
