    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time

    Pros

    34% of the next round of "Restructuring" (now 5500 world-wide) will affect management levels [some cases 8 tiers of management???] while "we" the employees still remain completely undermanned, overworked (working from home, in the car and all the above), working beyond our job title - supporting factors that equatations never cease to end (the on-going never-ending technology changes and support) - now even more so! Sad to say this is the positive - as I feel guilty complaining when so much has happened in the past WW1/WW2 etc... who are we to complain about too much work? I guess it beats living in a bomb shelter.

    Cons

    Have to stop blamming global economy! With the new management "leaders" in place in the new year (and hopefully this end of the world crap is finally put to rest), Alcatel-Lucent as a whole will start being in the black once and for all. Many other businesses world wide have successfully and more so strived in these times. Some have said it already where the indians make the company not the chiefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Undercover boss - watch it, learn from it - come off the top and find your roots again. This also applies in theory where as great managers are ususally those who have come up from the trenches as they know what things are like. Peace.
