Highly depends on your position and on your direct manager.
If your manager is professional enough, you will get a very good life-work balance. Remote work environment is mostly supported except some local cultures....

Good place to work but company left Nigeria to South Africa due to imbalance of trade practices between the Chinese Vendors and others. I work remotely from Nigeria and my bosses were in South Africa, United Kingdom and UAE. Atypical day at work is meeting Customer to introduce new product or do a bill of material of an existing offer.
Work place culture is online based because we heard meeting one every week to discuss current issue with customer and how to make more deals

As far as I was concerned Coriant was a good place to work. I was given enough leeway to learn and make decisions that had an impact on my professional work.

... 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.

Was a great place to work. Provided much experience and many challenges. Change in strategy is moving jobs to China and Europe. Can not recommend as I am not sure they are hiring.

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.

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

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.

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.

Coriant was former Tellabs and was bought by the venture capitol group Marlin. At first the experience was great but it's clear Marlins objective is to cut employees and cost to sell the company off.
Pros
None
Cons
No view of the future

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.
