Company spiraling downwards, led by lack of executive vision
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – 8 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.
Plenty of good memories from Tellabs days, before the Coriant train wreck.
Declining revenues, product development and innovation has nearly ceased, feeling of inevitable further collapse.
