Pros

very friendly environment. Flexible working hours. Team is very diverse. There are many senior engineers which simply means people are happy. Top level management is very close to engineers and I have seen they are very honest to people in lower levels.

Cons

Little social activities. Growth path is not clear.

Advice to Management

My advise is to keep people motivated. I know that there are many great engineers working there however it is necessary to motivate them.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cheaper 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 Management

    The 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.
