Pros

Flexible work schedule with telecommuting (in some regions)

Cons

Going bankrupt No raises or bonuses Corrupt incompetent management with loads of nepotism and creating a toxic work environment. They're glad to lose millions of dollars while they drive ALU into the ground while they focus on petty politics.

Advice to Management

Resign immediately if there is any hope at all to prevent bankruptcy.

    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.


  2. Nice place to start an academic career

    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.
