Way too many meetings, micro managers
Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAOctober 16, 2016
Meetings most of the day, allow little time to actually get work done. Need to work evenings and weekends to complete required tasks. Managers micro manage and don't trust workers to do their jobs. Employees do not share knowledge, and actually seem to be encouraged to behave this way. A few employees are very nasty and difficult but managers allow it.

Most employees are nice. Work is interesting.
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
No home life, expected to work all the time.

Consultant (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 25, 2013
Infinera has nice people to work with. They respond to my inquiries very quickly and make my job (gather information for tax returns) easy.

My boss was very reasonable. She trusts me to do my job and recognize hard working.

The hardest part of the job was SAP/Taxware implementation.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I work with.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Challenging sales tax issues
