    I have been working at Infinera full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative products built by very smart and hard-working engineers. Still one of the most exciting place to work in the optical telecom equipment industry.

    Cons

    Is growing to be a medium-sized company, which means growing layers of managements, growing rules and procedures...

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on hiring, training (technical, not only compliance), and retaining engineers and working managers, less on non-essential activities or adding more layers of management. Don't grow after Cisco or worse, Nortel.


  2. "Pretty good company. Perhaps among the best?"

    Pros

    Cool technology, lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Stock is flat... Still losing money. Tough industry. Kind of like a good house in a bad neighborhood? Hope this will change around with time.

    Since stock dropped and nobody's got rich, people started to build their empires. Grew too big. Too complex

    Advice to Management

    Simplify, simplify, simplify.
