    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great position with lots of flexibility working on latest technology. Work with great extensive global team and PLM organization. Simply awesome job to have with great management and strong corporate support.

    Cons

    While just amazing work environment, technology involvement with a lots of SME choices, one huge negative aspect to this job is amount of work on each engineer’s plate. Consulting engineers are way over worked which poses a great treath to family life in general.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for learning and working with experienced developers.
    It's relatively easy to move within the company to a project you prefer.
    Very flexible work schedule. In North America, you start with a very good amount of vacation, which is a good starting incentive.

    Cons

    Lacks that young developer culture/spirit; the work style and environment leaves little room for creativity and innovation. Extremely slow growth in compensation.
