Thread regarding Ciena Corp. layoffs

Ciena Layoffs 2014

Ciena is one of the companies that frequently goes through regular cycles of mass layoffs, reorg and outsourcing. Heavy overtime is to be expected, software in particular is abused a lot and opportunities for advancement and growth/learning new technologies are very small. Software engineers can do much better at many other places. Software engineering management jobs are probably the worse, management at Ciena is insanely political - much more than at other places where I worked; managers are expected to ride staff hard, burn 'em out quickly, and then lay them off. Avoid Ciena at all costs.

Please develop some respect for staff. Stop rewarding so-called leaders for hemorrhaging money. Take back Ciena to its core competence: communications technology development. Use your experienced staff to develop new products instead of buying companies that are losing money and then putting them in charge of the company.
