    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I'm hard pressed to come up with Pros - Great place to gain experience. If you can survive and thrive you gain a great deal of experience that you can take somewhere else

    Cons

    Culture after the merger is horrible, top down keep you in the dark management that is quick to tell you where you need to improve. If you're looking for collaborative, opportunity to grow, or a year end bonus/raise... probably not the best place to consider opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inject young talent, learn how to motivate your employees. Open up job opportunities. Get rid of the outside hiring freeze which is leading to unskilled, overpayed, lazy, people being saved from layoffs and being dumped in procurement.
