    Former Employee - Middle Level Management in Linthicum, MD (US)

    I worked at Ciena full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The increasingly dwindling employee base still had a few folks left who were tenured enough to know the day to day process.

    Cons

    *Extremely high employee turnover
    *Bonuses were a farce
    *Terrible upper management
    *Horrible cross departmental communication/cohesiveness
    *Complete lack of concern about employees
    *Zero corporate culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Years before joining Ciena I had heard it was a great place to work - after joining Ciena I heard this used to be such a great place to work. Clean house with old upper level managers/execs and bring in folks who want to work and can respectfully treat employees.
