    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work place, fun and open people, not such a difficult job.
    There is a flexible program, I managed to complete my masters study as I was working.

    Cons

    To little programming to progress as a software developer.
    Medium salary.
    Not so many people to learn from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more focused on what the developers have to say about how to improve the quality as well not just change the process every 3 months from the point of view of a manager with minimal technical skills .

    Former Employee - Cost Analyst in Timişoara (Romania)

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed working conditions, trips to nice places. The company's policy is to respect the employees during the trip and not choos cheap flights or cheap hotels. I very much appreciated this.

    Cons

    Mediocrity is encouraged. If you have some ideas of improving, some managers will tell you that is not what you are payed for. But it depends on the team. This is what happens in the supply-chain team in Romania: the managers from USA are very superficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage new ideas, especially on supply-chain. There are huge losses because of poor management; we were tellong this to our managers from USA and they would ignore it.

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People that are working here.
    Location.
    Technology is a plus and also a minus. It is a plus because working on LTE means working with the latest techno in telecom.

    Cons

    That fact that most of the projects are not done from zero. In ALU Timisoara most of the projects have been started in other sites. By this way the people from Timisoara have to work on a code designed and written by others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more transparent.
    Increase the salaries to be updated to Timisoara market.
