Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Started out a great place to work. When the times were good and the money was rolling in it was OK. They allowed for training classes yearly and respected people. You could get promoted for doing great work.

Cons

Promotions are for brown-nosers only now. People that started out as college interns and only been there 5 years are being turned into Directors! People in IT with many many years of loyal service are fleeing there because they plan on outsourcing the whole IT dept. However the VPs have not even gotten Board of Director approval on this outsourcing plan yet! If the Board rejects it and they keep IT in-house IT will be in trouble anyways at this point. People are RUNNING to look for new jobs in IT over there now.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to outsource something that you know NOTHING about. Treat people with respect and communicate your plans with your employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good culture. Some very good people work at Tellabs. I had hoped to work for this company for many years.

    Cons

    I was laid off, Tellabs moved almost all manufacturing to contract houses.

    Advice to Management

    Develop middle management talent with character. The trend these days is to promote the worst characters, this is the most demoralizing thing you can do to your workfoce
