Pros

For me, they're short commute and flexible work/life balance. I have a good team and enjoyed working with my team but not other teams we are dealing with.

Cons

the company is not profitable, the benefits are not comparable to others.

Advice to Management

there are still many people who do not do a good job but they are still in the team and get paid too much. Management is affaird to make a tough decision to let go a lot of people who do not contribute much to the operation of the Company.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Medium company atmosphere - easier access to executives than bigger companies.
    Hired a number of very strong executives in two of the largest business units.
    Managers who are smart and passionate about driving results receive good recognition.
    Jobs are broad so they provide great breadth of learning in mid levels management jobs than you get in bigger companies.
    Great opportunities for people who want to create and build vs. maintain.
    Values leaders with strong domain knowledge.

    Cons

    Company needs updated infrastructure - never fully caught up from the 2001 downturn.
    High variability of how positive your work experience is. Completely dependent on who your boss is. There isn't a unified culture due to legacy of acquisitions.
    Certain businesses are in very, very tough industries and markets.

    Advice to Management

    Need a vision at a company level.

    Pros

    Competitive team atmosphere. Management staff who really care about your performance and job satisfaction. Lots of opportunities for advancement. Exciting & dynamic environment...never a dull moment. Company functions you won't beat anywhere else outside the Beltway. If you're ok with existing in a constant state of flux where your job is never the same two days in a row, JDSU is the place for you.

    Cons

    Stressful and fast paced. "Trial by fire" / very steep learning curve for those without an engineering background. It certainly isn't for everyone. Low morale as a result of layoffs and the current economic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Please right the ship. I love working here.
