Flexible, fulfilling, but still acts like a start-up which is sometimes not a good thing.

Director (Current Employee)
Linthicum, MD (US)

I have been working at Ciena

ProsFlexible, good salary, ok benefits, nice offices in Linthicum MD,

ConsLack of processes/systems cause many manual and therefore time-consuming, error-prone activities. Lots of non-value add work due to lack of investment in infrastructure/processes. Lack of financial analysis. Accounting refuses to provide financial analysis to management.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in IT/infrastructure and FP&A. Mandate policies. Man-up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
