    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent

    Pros

    The flexibility of working remote; the accessibility to foreign colleagues, the vast area of areas to work in.

    Cons

    No wage increase or bonus for multiple years at a time. Making tuition reimbursement difficult for employees to access and thus forcing them to use their own money causing an additional strain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not getting a bonus on a bad year is ok, but never increasing your employees salary to at least cover inflation is horrible. The company also appears to favor the European employees over other regions and it is noticeable to all.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with in most cases.

    Cons

    Unstable management - doesn't have a vision they stick with. Management is anti-north amaerican. They have publicly said NA is the place to lay off personnel because they don't want to deal with EU unions and SE Asia is the favored region for any new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some VPs and Directors with few, of any reports, and keep the people that do the real work.
