Pros

- It was a paycheck
- Some of the teams there are sharp and want to make a real difference
- We can always count on extended time off due to company shutdowns
- lots of cash on balance sheet.

Cons

- Zero vision in CCOP organization. It's all about HC reduction and reducing expense
- CCOP leader lacks any vision, any human touch, and is surrounded by "yes" people.
- "Toxic" environment in CCOP and total lack of trust in mgmt. (Cascades from the top)
- Never know when the a is coming on your head..keep your resume current.
- Benefits get cut without employees knowing or being told.

Advice to Management

- Get some leaders that know how to drive a real strategic vision and and actually cares about the organization and employees.
- Clean house at the top esp in CCOP. (It's not too late)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    JDSU is one of the largest companies in optical components space. JDSU actually has a good reputation among those who have never worked with or for the company.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is highly political. The company is a mish mash of former M&As, with no sense of corporate integration or culture.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover is huge. Like nothing I've ever seen. The organization lends itself to employee dissatisfaction and negativity. More communication between all levels would help.
