    Pros

    Large company with standard benefits of company this size. Vacation, Stock purchase plan, 401K, all average but would not say any area is exceptional.

    Cons

    *Lack of vision in acknowledging market shifts from Copper to Fiber platforms.
    * Lack of R&D and innovation incentives for Engineers Design teams.
    * Failure of management to recognize and encourage professional growth of technical teams and individuals.
    * Lack of promotion opportunities & lack of clear direction by management in order for employees to have clear goals for professional growth and advancement.
    Bare minimum cost of living increases each year. usually 1%-2.5% increases.
    Inefficient and cumbersome systems for ordering, engineering, design, & new product development.

    Advice to Management

    Mid level & Upper management issues that have been brought to HR's attention numerous times by numerous individuals. Nothing ever done to correct even after some departments saw 4,5, 6+ employees leave for other opportunities within a 2 year time span specifically due to management concerns.
