Pros

JDSU has great people! People that will bend over backwards to do a good job and put in the right amount of time and effort. Also, the compensation is pretty good when you bust your butt. They are willing to negotiate when they really want you!

Cons

The management team do not understand how to run a $1.0B+ business. Due to all the M&A activity, you've got small potatoes managers trying to strategically run a huge business. The communication of strategy beyond the CEO and his staff is extremely poor, the worker bee doesn't have any idea how what they do on a daily basis does anything good for the company.

Advice to Management

Management - learn to communicate your strategy, identify clear objectives that you organizations can rally behind to ensure that they are successful.
