I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent

Pros

International Mobility Opportunities
Learn from extremely experienced people in telecom
Above average basic salary

Cons

Struggling company that cannot seem to turn the business around completely
Good Old Boys club makes it hard to penetrate Sr Management
Average age is relatively old
Company misses true identity - not really #1 in any of its business
Next 5 years is critical to survival of company: It is either going to be hugely successful or disappear

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the hard decisions. Create an identity. Cut the lines of business where we cannot be #1 or #. Within that process you create a lean focused market leading business with plenty of cash in its pockets from the spin offs / LOB sales. We cannot do it all.

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent

    Pros

    Great work life balance, Organisation changes at the drop of a hat, which is good for employees. Creates an opportunity for employees to move around within the company.
    Lots of training, some of the best I have seen globally - but online only!

    Cons

    Work culture is very laid back... employees are not motivated.
    Promotions are non existent. It is Largely due to the financial position of the company.
    Very few people you find are passionate about their work,
