I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent

Pros

Good camaraderie and support from other employees. Nose to the grindstone - all of us together kind of environment. Reasonable social perks.

Cons

Nepotism, favoritism, and quid pro quo are rampant. Pay, bonus and advancement are not based on merit or skills. Some immoral behavior is overlooked by, or condoned by senior management. Gross imbalance in pay between like roles. No recourse for review.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our company could do so much better if we had leaders rather than managers who like to call themselves leaders. There is too much back-slapping and group-think. Independent thought should be encouraged, not punished.
