    Former Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at JDSU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had good time until the company announced that they are going to Split. It was only little more than year that I worked so I cant say for sure whether I would have enjoyed long term. When I was working, the IT leadership team was great: CIO, VP of IT Apps and several directors that I interacted with were seasoned experts and professional.

    Cons

    offshore development...we all know how that works. Some of the Business Partners are in US East Coast and Europe. So, people who are based out of HQ be prepared to work in weird hours, either talking to Business users or with the development team who is based in India.
