  2. "Overall great company to work for, but struggling in advance of 5G commercialization"

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Richardson, TX

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

    Pros

    Was able to work on a wide variety of interesting projects with a fair amount of autonomy with regard to how problems were solved. Job security was very high for a number of years. Great benefits (e.g., $85/week premium for family coverage, PTO buy back, 401k matching, etc).

    Cons

    Market really seemed to struggle as the commercialization of 4G neared completion, resulting in several rounds of layoffs and cost cutting measures (extended holiday shutdowns, no raises, etc). Being primarily a hardware manufacturer, Anritsu doesn't seem to value quality software engineering as much. There was a general reluctance to embrace modern programming languages, tools, techniques, etc. Technical (non-management) advancement opportunities were few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize software engineering quality. Leverage modern tools and best practices. Increase collaboration between product teams and try to establish product-agnostic teams in order to increase reuse and process alignment, focusing on software development at a lower level.

    I worked at Anritsu full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security with a history of long term employment. Big company responsibilities with small company rolls so you can take on more diverse responsibilities​.

    Cons

    Long term managers can be stuck in their old ways so initiating change can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in seeking advice from less seasoned employees and don't be afraid of making changes even if the project has risk.
