Featured Review

Current Employee - Solutions Specialist

I have been working at Ciena full-time for less than a year

Pros

Very well organized and very professional way of working with an external hire and onboarding. Manager and HR were very good with communicating periodically and keeping employee well informed.

Cons

Can't think of any....only minor thing was that the work laptop arrived later than expected but delay was on fedex side due to weather conditions, so none in reality!

Advice to Management

So far so good. Everything is going well.

Former Intern - Summer Intern

Not much growth, Working on already developed technologies
