    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the non-performers. There are plenty of people who gave up and just show up.

    Pros

    International company that still recover from a huge merge (Alcatel and Lucent), very tough industry that require entrepreneurship and work effectiveness - the two things this company needs to develop

    Cons

    Large company that provide many opportunities to develop, one of the best telecommunications companies there is, have great employees that still believe in the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace work effectiveness and explore new areas
