Massive changes from the old days
Director (Former Employee), Germantown, MDOctober 21, 2014
This is a note about the communications test business.

JDSU destroyed the culture of the company that was 30% of the revenue and 90% of the profits.

Then after they've totally messed up a very good thing, they spin it off.

Yeesh...

Good company with too much company politics
Director (Former Employee), Milpitas, CAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: good diversity and benefits
Cons: work hours and company politics
It makes sense to have stretched goals and objectives, but it seems management is stretching the teams way too thin and setting unrealistic goals.

Was a very good job. Was able to work independently and also with teams.
Enginering Technician (Former Employee), Bloomfield, CTJuly 17, 2014
One of the best places I had worked for. Great work atmosphere and management. All co-workers were helpful and all worked well together. Company became a victim of the dot-com bust in 2000 and was forced to scale back drastically. Was very sad to lose that job. Best job I ever had.

Challenging company to work for with opportunity to keep current with new technologies
Americas Manager/Engineer Fiberoptics (Former Employee), Milpitas, CAMarch 27, 2014
Pros: compensation was excellent
Cons: too many layers of management not enough field staff
My work day varied and included both office and travel requirements. When in office, review Salesforce opportunities and/or interact remotely with sales and/or customers to provide technical support via webex, email or creation of training material. Management implements new processes annually and change and reorganization occurs frequently. My co-workers work hard but due to the fact that we all work remotely, miscommunication occurs frequently. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping customers resolve network issues.
