Advice to Management

Alcatel-Lucent is like the place where a lot of old people go to retire. This company needs more young energy to get it jump started. There's not enough innovating and too much complacency.

    Pros

    Good work life balance : Since the working hours are not very long, and travel is low, the work life balance is good.
    Decent Pay and benefits : Pays above market wages. However no bonuses for the last 3 years
    Decent work pace : Work pace and pressure is normal.

    Cons

    Low morale in the company : A lot of it comes from the fact that its a loss making company
    Low or no Bonus for last three years as compared to competitors : Again, this arises from the fact that it's a loss making company
    Low career growth opportunities : No clear career path. Also, since the company growth is low and attribution is high, not a lot of positions available to grow

    Advice to Management

    Hire more energetic employees who are willing to work hard and smart.

  2. Soft environment, casual dressing.
