Great company to work for while it lasted ...
Customer Service Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL19 March 2018
... But going nowhere with current management. After long years with no pay raise, they decided to cut costs and close down several departments and ship the jobs overseas or to local in-country subcontractors. No career advancement inside that company that is going downhill.

Company spiraling downwards, led by lack of executive vision
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL8 November 2017
Was a good place to work in Naperville because of a great engineering team and high innovation. Over past couple of years, management shuffles resulted in increasing influence from CEO and others who lack vision. Eliminated the R&D in North America, where all of the innovation and complex design was originating, leaving only European and China locations that lack the experience and guidance to prevent the free fall. Once current product mix and contracts run out, so will Coriant. Very sad to see what has happened.
Pros
Plenty of good memories from Tellabs days, before the Coriant train wreck.
Cons
Declining revenues, product development and innovation has nearly ceased, feeling of inevitable further collapse.

good development staff, poor business plan and sales
Senior Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Naperville, IL5 October 2017
Development staff is very capable, however a number of executive decisions and declining sales have forced many reductions in force, and low morale.

The technology and products provide enjoyable work as does the engineering staff.
Pros
good people
Cons
sales cannot support the business

Great People, but Lousy Management
Lead Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL18 September 2017
This company is dead, poor executive decisions lead to Tellabs to be acquired by VC Marlyn, which gutted the assets and left it for dead. No assets and funding left our largest customers wary to continue to do business with us. If constant layoffs of personnel sounds good to you, this is your company.

Good place to work
Senior Process and Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL6 September 2017
It was a good place to work, but my job was transferred out of the country. I had a very good manager and worked with good people. It is unfortunate that they moved my job to China.

People are great, but the company is continuing to shrink in the Naperville location, so no job security. All hardware development work has been eliminated.

Product Support 7100 DWDM and 5500 DAC
Senior Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL10 March 2017
When company was formally Tellabs it was a great place to work.
As a Tech Support Eng you worked with all departments to meet customer needs and resolved network problems. Working in a telecom technology company give you a broad knowledge and understanding of telecom.
Pros
working with other departments to resolved technical issues.
Cons
no comment

good work life balance
Director Solutions Consultant (Former Employee) –  Gurgaon, Haryana6 March 2017
Good work life balance
Job security is an issue since the management has not been stable. Trying to get business but have not been successful. The merger with Tellabs has been a big problem.

Great people, but we always have a sense of doom
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL17 February 2017
Locally a very hands off management style, a great environment to work in if you are a self starter. The employees across sites work well together, much better than at previous places I had worked at. At the corporate level, do not expect to be informed of the health or status of the company, that information is not shared. The lack of communication does not help morale, allowing the rumor mill to run rampant.
Pros
It is a collabrative environment to work in, everyone is helpful and they want you to succeed.
Cons
Shortcuts are always being taken to help get the product out the door, which has an adverse effect on customer quality, and may be a reason for the continual cost cutting and downsizing.
