I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 10 years)

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.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (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 within the corporation it is a very stressful work environment with employees expected to perform at high levels under the constant threat of workforce reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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 and lower management workforce while retaining far too many in upper management positions. Top management lacks vision for future growth of the company. Business processes are too complex and antiquated to allow the company to be responsive to customer needs. Development cycles for new products are too long and product quality has diminished over time due to overly complex business processes and the outsourcing of manufacturing to third parties. Far too much bureaucracy with productive employees under the constant threat of workforce reductions is not a recipe for success.
