Great work environment, too encumbered by processes and systems.

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

Pros

Lower level management is respectful of individual contributors. Lots of opportunity to move around within the company. Good products.

Cons

Too many systems and processes which get in the way of efficiency. Too much time required of individuals to report too often on financials in too many formats.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Until Sales is also held responsible for the ultimate profitability of contracts they will continue to deliver deals that look good 'on paper' but have no chance of truly being profitable.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern

    Pros

    senior people are very helpful and willing to teach. It is still a good place for research and learning. Arrangement for your own work is flexible.

    Cons

    People are worried about cutoffs which keeps on during the past few years. The company lost a lot of famous guys who worked here of tens of years.
