Meh

MTS-1 (Former Employee)
Lisle, IL

ProsGood benefits, management is hit or miss. Training is getting better. Continuing ed used to be great, but I'm not so sure now.

ConsThe technology you use at Alcatel-Lucent is very isolated. Having a great job here usually means your skills will not apply anywhere else. The 5ESS product I worked with was based off technology decades old, and was a bit of a Frankenstein monster.

Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the non-performers. There are plenty of people who gave up and just show up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
