Glassdoor is your free inside look at Alcatel-Lucent reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for Alcatel-Lucent CEO Michel Combes. All reviews posted anonymously by Alcatel-Lucent employees.
Former Employee – worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time for 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 Senior Management – Take your words seriously as they are hollow otherwise.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
