Great flexibility, Good work environment

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at JDSU full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork environment is pretty good. You get a lot of flexibility. Good life/work balance.

ConsThe jobs are not challenging. Your ideas are not being considered. Some times, the projects gets end up using primitive technologies. There are no processes in place. Unable to get more projects. Existing projects are getting expired/closed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
