    I have been working at Ciena full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management cares about the people, provides good high level roadmaps and the individual business have good autonomy.

    Cons

    Not alot of movement on stock value. I would like to see more tangile perks so such is budget for team building, group outings (around holidays) and more discretionary spending by teams.
