    Pros

    The company is well into the merger and the initial hurdles & barriers no longer exist. Great/good benefits. French: easy going culture is more prevalent even in the US.

    Cons

    Most of the major decision making is top down and execution is at the middle-lower level. Decision making is slow, productivity low, budgets limited.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, the company is struggling with the over regulation of US markets. Competing with lower cost competitor products and demanding environments of international markets. Create a newer line of lower cost products. Higher quality & reliability are less valuable internationally where the key driver is costs (limited budgets).


  2. End of an era, begining of the end!

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are up there. My management did not do "bed checks and my schedule was fllexible.

    Cons

    Morale sucks, no job security. Bell Labs was once great. It is very sad to see what became of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the workforce reductions. The good talent is jumping ship.
