Total Rewards 

At Ciena, Our Success is Rooted in People.

We are committed to providing competitive reward programs in recognition for all the work our people do. Our goal is to be able to drive alignment between rewards, personal, and company performance.


More than just pay

We know how much work goes into making the company a success so we strive to provide competitive benefits.

We support holistic wellbeing and offer benefits that meet your physical, emotional, social, and financial wellbeing.

Your time, your way

We don't believe in fixed 9-5 work.  We believe in outcomes and flexible working conditions. It doesn't matter where, when, or how you work - as long as you deliver. 

Whatever you need, we'll make sure you've got time for you.

Don't stop learning

We value development and recognize the importance of continuous learning. We also believe in your active participation in your development - it all starts with you.

So take classes, attend a conference, get certified.  We'll foot the bill. 

Here's what people have to say

Ciena enables me to play a part in the rapidly evolving technology landscape. Just knowing that the biggest internet companies in the world are Ciena's customer's is one thing, but when a requirement from Facebook or Google pops up, the feeling of being a part of something that affects the world dawns on me. It is a proud feeling.

I’m so grateful for Ciena’s family! I had the chance to join Ciena in London straight after my Masters. Ciena has given me the opportunity not only to work with a lot of smart and experience people, but also to travel and meet peers internationally. I also chose to work for Ciena because of the wide range of different job roles available and the different rotations you can do! Giovanni Tosi Associate, Inside Sales
