    A rollercoaster ride

    I have been working at Alvarion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, interesting and promising technology

    Cons

    Got side tracked from their main mission, and then didn't keep up with the US carriers' move to LTE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How could a company with $170 million in cash, no debt, and 850+ employees around the world when I started in late 2007, go belly-up and shut down virtually all US operations and lay-off 350-400 employees by early 2011 - it boggles the mind.

    I worked at Alvarion

    Pros

    If you are able to be a yes master kind of a guy and willing to dance to the tunes of people above you, it is a perfect place. You will get out of turn hikes and can retire in peace and probably get reemployed as a consultant after your super annuation

    Cons

    The Managment is clue less about what they are doing. Supposed to be a technology company with virtually non existant R&D. The R&D and Product Development head used to be a Lawyer but education. Absolutely no focus on business development and clue less about where the industry is heading. Extremely over staffed with useless people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up before you sink with the ship
