Nice place to start an academic career

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Murray Hill, NJ

ProsFirst 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.

ConsIt 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Alcatel-Lucent Still on the Decline

    Technical Sales (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Good salary, decent but declining benefits. Cons: Poorly managed company that has been and continues to be on the decline. The company provides good pay and benefits but for most disiplines… Advice to Senior Management: Top management is too slow to react to market conditions to address declining revenue. The primary means of cutting cost is always reducing the middle… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
