"I had worked for JDSU over the the past 14+ years in several locations and 2 different countries. JDSU is made up of several different companies that were acquired over the years. This has led to many challenges for JDSU in trying to find a single identity. This is playing out right now as the company is splitting again into 2 different entities. The employees are in a constant state of flux, this leads to many challenges for the employees."

"I worked at JDSU for 7+ years. The best thing about the group I work in is the people. I know I can depend on everyone I work with on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately the trust stops there. Middle and upper management is very disconnected from the individual contributor. Communication is one directional and the thoughts and ideas of engineers are rarely considered."
