    Current Employee - Global Product Support Engineer in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Ciena full-time (more than an year)


    - If you're lucky, you'll end up with colleagues you want to spend weekday and some weekends with!
    - Work/Life balance & benefits (health, DCPP, etc)
    - Ottawa/Carling campus is beautiful
    - Ever-growing; New challenges always around the corner to keep your mind stimulated
    - The company is on a growth trajectory currently which means new projects, more customers which ensures job stability/security
    - Growth also gives way for [hopefully] more frequent & larger bonuses and opportunity to move within firm


    - Unpredictable work volume
    - The number of new challenges you must overcomes grows everyday; You need a wicked memory
    - Unspoken rules, "mandatory" 44 hour work week BS!
    - No raises, no compensation aside from base salary and overtime if you qualify
    - Bonuses and raises are a joke/non-existent
    - Very few opportunities for new-grads to progress in terms of career development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should not ignore current employees, especially those who are relatively new (2-4 years) when it's time to award compensation/raises. This does not promote loyalty and leaves very little incentive to stick around.

    Positive Outlook
