I have been working at JDSU full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Motivated and responsible engineers exist and it is very nice to work with those folks rather than dealing with someone whose only focus is to get something done at all costs. Engineering designs should be done not in a hacked way, but rather while thinking of its long term consequences and affects on other sides of the bigger design, involving other projects (now and in the future)

Cons

I don't believe there is effort coming from the senior and mid management to retain talented (and already trained for the work we do) in the company. Money as well as ranking changes I don't think are used properly to satisfy talented people. This in the long run will cripple the engineering part of the company, which will most likely affect the companies' ability to sustain its promised growth.

Advice to Management

Please pay more attention to retain the talented engineers with the company. Those people are hard to keep as they tend to be smarter than the rest - They will leave the company after waiting a bit if they don't get what they believe they should: Promotion (aka give them more responsibility) and money. I don't believe these two tools are used properly and on-time to keep the talent in-house.
