    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent

    Pros

    Good salary and Benefits. Previous opportunities for professional development. Past culture of Innovation. Some of the brightest minds in the industry have worked here. Passionate about customer support

    Cons

    Low Morale. Frozen pay. Short term focus. Cash constrained. Survival Mode

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift plan has gone too far. Business lines are operating like separate companies. No Focus on delivering solutions. Silo'd approach for delivering services.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Just a great company to work with. I was a contractor from SCom. I enjoyed every minute working with/for Alcatel-Lucent.

    Can't think of any. I enjoyed every minute there. We got all the training on the Sprint installation we needed, and everyone was ready to help out if there was a problem.

    Hire me back. Don't change a thing.

    Management is flexible & driven. You are challenged & rewarded for outstanding work. You may get the opportunity to travel & meet other amazing professionals in the industry. I have grown so much since starting with ALU. I could never thank the team of people I work with enough.

    Cons

    None! My workload is hectic at times, but this is no reflection if the company. I am very pleased!
