I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nice headquarter in New Jersey, nice people in the company. Not much politics. The company is changing from technical to be more customer orientation.

Cons

The company is still losing money every years. Although LTE is emerging and this is an opportunity, the competitors such as Huawei from China seems to be quite cost effective and strong. Bad profit makes no promotion or salary raise in recent years. Lost many good people thereafter.

    Pros

    big company and mulitcultural experience, strives to do the right thing by its people, undergoing a lot of change to transform the business which can be good experience, working for company who has innovation from Bell Labs, some good talent, many good people

    Cons

    over engineered processes so becomes inefficient, French style of decision by consensus can make it hard to get anything done, does not take advantage of wins and Bell Labs innovations to get more market traction
