    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Challenging work, great and talented people, and a good place for graduates to get their bearings. With the acquisition of Nortel's CVAS BU, this has given Genband the bulk it needs to be a serios contender in the telecom industry.

    Cons

    More and more R&D work is being sent to non- North American sites. This is largely an effort to squeeze cost from the product line.

    Advice to Management

    Consider incubating more innovation rather than focusing on cost reduction as part of network transformation.
