    I worked at Calix full-time

    Pros

    Good industry because not too many companies making optic network devices and the competition is relatively low.

    Cons

    - Very high turnover rate since 2014, hired around 10 new VPs and replaced or left about 5. About 5 directors were hired and then fired within less than a year. - Most political company I ever seen - when they don't like someone, they will make rumors to blacken him/her. - Horrible system test and automation team - they don't know how to reject unreasonable requirement and they can't find valuable bugs using... minimum resources. They wasted too much money on outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    - Minimize the multiple located offices to 1 or 2. - Downgrade management title by 1 at least because they are not qualified.
