I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

First of all, Bell Labs is a big name that can be put on your resume. Second, in Bell Labs, there are lots of influential researchers actively working, and you can talk, learn and cooperate with them.

Cons

It seems the Bell Labs is losing its former influence on its research area. It used to be the leader in science and technology. Now it is facing great challenge from its competitors like AT&T research Lab, etc. Besides, the finance supporting the Bell Labs, or the Alcatel-Lucent, is having a tough time that it has to cut-off 6000 employees globally last year.

    Pros

    great working environment. ALU Porducts are good, top of the line, only problem is all telco companies do not want to invest. Company has great research funding and strive for improvement. Pay scale is fair I think.

    Cons

    No salary increase for last 3 years. Bosses are keep on changing. Restructuring is on-going. To many products in different areas, it's a huge organization worldwide.

    Pros

    In such a large company, there's usually an opportunity to expand to new functions and growth areas as new offers and accounts are explored.

    Cons

    A long history of trying to be everything to everyone or trying to make the next big play has strained the companies finances at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to ensure that day-to-day priorities of the employees are directly aligned with the goals set at the executive levels.
