What is the retirement plan like at Sonus Networks?

Pros

401k match....not really sure what else!

Cons

So many cons... very laid back, negative energy and all around bad culture. Why would you invest in a company that can not and will not be able to scale? Genband and Sonus employees are still there as they don’t have any other employment options... waiting patiently for the clock to turn to 5.. I would not recommended to anybody, friend or not.

How are the career development opportunities at Sonus Networks?

Pros

As the title suggests, it is a fun place to start for new graduates. The senior engineering and R&D talent that is working here is phenomenal, and the group of people you will work with and interact with are very friendly. The entire office as a whole is "tightly knit" as over 80% are ex nortel staff. - Ping pong table allows for a lot of fun during the week. - coffee machine is nice to have - company does have some fun events that anyone can get involved in and participate in - RRSP matching is nice - benefits are on par with industry - opportunities within the company to move to a different team. - Culture is good As a starting developer or coop, you'll learn a lot here and a lot of it depends on you, and definitely to an extent your manager in terms of career growth. You can ask for more work (or more challenging work) if you need it and you'll be given meaningful work. You will get the mentorship you are looking for here. Morale here has been on the rise since late 2017 as financially the company is more sound since the merger, and hiring has been on the rise as well. Innovation has been well received by the market as well.

Cons

- Salary is not that competitive, however there is a bonus which when factored in will help you to get closer to the industry standard. But since it is a publicly traded company, a bad quarter or bad year can mean no bonus! Doesn't matter how hard you worked that year. - Up until recently the attitude from upper management has been more along the lines of "be happy you have a job", another reason some employees can get frustrated, especially senior staff, many of which have not seen raises in a long time. - The team i was working in had a total lack of coordination, everyone is "doing their own thing", offshore team in bangalore are good but they never seem to document their code and it can be hard to get a hold of them when you need an explanation for something. - Company loves to add headcount to the offshore workforce (Bangalore, India), the only growing area (in terms of headcount) in north america is at the Ottawa facillity from the looks of it. - Processes are still not completely streamlined and keep changing

Advice to Management

It's pretty clear why younger talent is leaving, do more to retain them. Hire more mid level Staff, continue to diversify from simply core SBCs.

As a starting developer or coop, you'll learn a lot here and a lot of it depends on you, and definitely to an extent your manager in terms of career growth.
