    I worked at Anritsu full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location. Pay was comparable to jobs within San Jose.

    Cons

    Old school thinking, very slow to change to keep up with the industry. People have been there for 30+ years not making any strides in adapting to the new way of business. Very hard to get anything approved. Poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the old stagnant employees who are too afraid to change and adapt with the changing technology.

    Pros

    Anritsu has a very good work atmosphere, with good employees, flexible hours, and a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    The Test & Measurement Industry is experiencing a difficult economic environment at the moment, so business is slow and morale is lower than usual.

    Advice to Management

    Get aggressive searching the market for new opportunites, and continue the new strategy of getting products to market quickly. Also do not discount the high level of service and expertise the manufacturing group provides to the lab to assist in the success of newly introduced products.

    Pros

    Benefit are ok. Production line workforce has talented individuals that can or will not be helpful.

    Cons

    Everything that coincides with being a female! Good luck with having ideas that can produce high yields then approaching either your manager management , not only do you get let down they store it away and steel it as their own. Upper management lack intelligence innovative sh=kills as well as future outlook. Cannot go far in a cowpoke town, male dominated humpty dumpty's dishing their daily dose of discrimination that wont take you far. Where you saddle up rodeo style next to a bunch of good ole boys. This company is staffed with a bunch of corporate nitwits & business units full of dinosaurs!

    Advice to Management

    Retire, quit & die

    I worked at Anritsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a number of good people still working here, and if you are in the right team you could probably do well.
    A bunch of smart people to learn from and technically interesting things to work on.
    Work/life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    People still employed there seem to be still there because they haven't been let go yet. This is even evident at the supervisor level where you will likely find zero support (due to them looking out for themselves).
    Being in Morgan Hill and not actual Silicon Valley has led to a very distorted view of the valley.
    A lot of 'Old Think' tends towards making products which whilst being technically better than the competition are too expensive and not actually what people want to buy.

    Advice to Management

    Turn this thing around. Listen to your smart employees and make them feel valued. It is hard to repeatedly hear the phrase "No lay-offs planned" and then see your friends let go in the next month or two.
    Repeatedly laying off 10% of your work force (the Romans called this Decimation) does not encourage loyalty.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start right out of college. A lot of first hand experience and a good group of people who work there. Compensation is okay but it is the benefits/perks which are outstanding.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition and growth after a 2 years. No real defined advancement plan for younger professionals seeking opportunities for growth. Most of the corporate officers and upper management have been with the company for 20 to 25 + years are resistant to which has stunted any kind of positive growth.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs be revamped.

    Pros

    if killing time and not working on challenging projects can be counted as pros !

    Cons

    worthless place, my manager was completely ignorant of everything that is going on in his own group. bunch of college graduates were running the show with lack of perspective. everybody seemed to be delusional there. very rigid and inconsiderate place. overall the very bad experience. will not recommend it.

    I worked at Anritsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Anritsu is not your typical silicon valley company but the opportunities I had there were fantastic. We worked on cutting edge products. Manufacturing is onsite which provides excellent opportunities to learn about the complete product life cycle. Work-life balance was excellent. Yes, there are many employees that have been there for 25+ years, there is a reason for that. Tuition reimbursement and other benefits were great. Most everybody I can think of are team players and the opportunities to learn from very smart people around you are plentiful. I can not think of anyone that I was not comfortable talking with and learning from. A very can-do team spirit company.

    Cons

    Anritsu seems to be late to the game when it comes to current processes but they are turning that around.
    If you want stock options, this is not the company for you.
    The facilities are older than many companies have but they have made efforts to keep them current.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, friendly work environment where people are willing to support one another for the success of the overall group. Opportunity to work on leading edge technology projects in a team environment. Good compensation and benefits. Can be an enjoyable place for someone looking at a long term career, with a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes processes and tools are slow to change with the rapidly changing environment. Facilities are more traditional than the next generation tech companies, and is slow to adapt to new working environments like scrum. Currently in a slow growth market of T&M. If someone is wanting a fast paced start-up environment, this is not the place for them.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to make changes and take risks for the growth of the company.
