We believe in a working environment where the focus is achieving work outcomes rather than when and where the work gets done.
Flexible working enables team members to continue making a difference while maintaining focus on personal commitments and their own wellbeing.
Flexible Working at Ciena
Our focus has always been on outcomes. You are given the flexibility to work at the office or at home with your own work schedule to accommodate life's many demands.
You will have access to collaboration tools and resources on topics such as productivity, ergonomics, and remote working to pave the way for success.
Global Flexible Paid Time Off
It is important to take time off from work to refresh and recharge. Our Global Flexible PTO program provides uncapped time off, allowing you to rest when you need to, take a well-being day or deal with an emergency without fear of exhausting your leave balance.
We're committed to empowering you to create your own outcomes. It's about working efficiently, smartly, and having each other's back to allow time away from work.
Part-Time work is an option that you can use if you are looking to reduce your work schedule if you are:
Going back to school
Having a shift in your personal life
Planning for retirement, etc.

We offer global family leave options to support you throughout various life stages.
New mothers receive a minimum of 18 weeks off at full pay, along with the option of up to 6 months of phased-in return to work at full pay. New fathers and adoptive parents are provided 10 weeks paid time off.
You also get paid time off if you are caring for a spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition.
