    I worked at Infinera full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay and health insurance is good. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    The company is constantly in a cutting mode. Cutting of employees, services and infrastructure. There is no new investment into upgrading or replacing the very old infrastructure. The 401K plan is pathetic and noncompetitive.

    I worked at Infinera full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent work life balance. The benefits are ok but not amazing. Due to the small size of the company there is some amount of autonomy however little advancement.

    Cons

    Too much management. Lots of managers and directors. They seem to multiply every time you turn around. VPs brings in their own team growing the management.
