    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.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A large enterprise with an outstanding history. A community atmosphere that rewards strong contributors and values innovation. A merger of two radically different cultures. Ben Verwaayen has much experience with AT&T and understands the market and opportunities.

    Cons

    Brutal when faced with adversity and cost reductions. A strong heritage abandoned with little commitment to continued research. Investors always considered before employees and customers. People managers were much more concerned with their fates than providing support and guidance to their direct reports. Reporting of financial results always spun to the positive internally despite external realities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your words seriously as they are hollow otherwise.
