Used to be a great company & industry. Telecom bubble burst & cheaper competition has taken its toll !

Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Murray Hill, NJ

ProsGreat benefits package, proud heritage - Bell Labs, great team & flexible schedule, still has the innovation humming but on a back burner.

ConsCheaper overseas competition & foreign government supported companies has taken its toll on the business. The North American & European economic struggles are certainly not helping. The industry & company continues to struggle ever since the telecom bubble burst in early 2000s.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe number of employees left is the lowest it can go. Invest heavily in the next generation changing technology and own & protect it- innovation is the key to break out of the downward spiral OR acquire enterprise business competitor OR sell the enterprise business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: You learn more about B2B marketing and what it takes to role out marketing campaigns and newsletters to a whole region… Cons: Sometimes given menial tasks that sometimes leave you feeling insignificant. There is little interaction between you… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    management needs alot of improvement; do not have a clear direction or plan to improve

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: long history, too bad its going down hill now Cons: not making any money; frozen salaries and no bonus. Advice to Senior Management: cut red tape; empower people; stop second guessing; allow risk… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
