    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities, bunch of high energy guys, flexibility to move around with different groups

    Cons

    No pay raise for the last several years, lots of work, no work-life balance. Company strategy keeps changing and does not get communicated well to the others and so the vision and strategy are not clear

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value the best employees and provide a pay raise. Ensure that there is a better work-life balance.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent Holding

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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).
