Pros

This company treats co-ops with great respect. You're treated as one of the team and a serious effort is made to further you're classwork with practical application as well as a great emphasis towards on the job training with things you could never pick up in the classroom.

Cons

Not many I can think of. The people there are excellent and the location in Germantown is great. I really have no complaints overall.

Advice to Management

Don't let the co-op program fall to the wayside in these tough times. The experience I received here was at least as important as anything I received in my university education.

    Pros

    A large company with many locations to work at, good benefits, attractive campus.
    Reasonably good tools to work with (computers, programs, internet access).

    Cons

    Very poor career path development and motivation of employees. Many workers are brought into the company through acquisitions at very low salaries compared to comparable companies. They employ a cumbersome review process that management does not follow through with.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the abilities of the employees and their respective contributions. Motivate and reward those individuals that are productive and review career path options so that they are motivated to continue to perform. Unfortunately, JDSU has the poor reputation of offering retension as the only possible reward for exceptional performance and that is by no way guaranteed.
