    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is so vast that one person's pros will be someone else's cons. There is no objective list of the pros. My pros include working from home, a decent salary for my age and education level, and freedom to pursue my own desires within my work.

    Cons

    The company is currently on the downswing, and is liquidating administrative positions in favor of revenue generating engineers. This is normally somewhat good, but they are already near a critical minimum of admin personnel, and further cuts will only result in increased workload for everyone else who is already overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the downsizing qualitative, not quantitative.
