    Pros

    I view the company, Alcatel-Lucent, as stable and predictable corporation with well-defined internal procedures, strong business ethics and codes.

    Cons

    I found that the company is quite inflexible and lacking true innovation spirit. If you are looking for the cutting-edge technologies and carrier growth opportunities, I would suggest to look somewhere.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. You're also working for a respected company with a good record of achievement in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Poor internal communication. Infighting. Unbalanced approached to market issues (not able to quickly fix problems).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of your employees and make sure you make yourself accessible to all. Make a point of meeting ONCE a month (not once a year) with your team.
