Pros

Great co-workers, talented engineering pool. Work life balance welcomed and supported

Cons

Too many organizational changes going on constantly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Select one company structure and 2 initiatives and stick with them. The constant change and layoffs makes everyone unproductive as they wait for the next change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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