    I have been working at Ciena full-time (more than 3 years)


    Commute to work is good. Salary is on the low end for the local area but options outside of Gov't contract work in this area are very limited.


    SW is weak, not a differentiator in the market. I feel this opportunity to capture market share is slipping away because Exec Leadership has not acted aggressively. Customer satisfaction with some of the larger carriers has become a significant problem and will likely limit sales growth - this impacts a significant portion of Ciena's revenue stream.

    Politics seem especially virulent among the execs. Probably because we have not hit our margin goals and stock is way down. Reorgs happen pretty regularly, VPs disappear without explanation. Trust level feels low among execs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address SW issues with transparency and leadership.
    Gary Smith should take a bigger role in developing a positive culture.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
