Netter Arbeitgeber am Anfang, aber es wird beständig schlechter. Nice employer in the beginning but it is constantly getting worse

Pros

Alcatel-Lucent bietet ein sehr nettes Gehalt mit sehr verschiedenen Jobmöglichkeiten im Bereich der Telekommunikation, insbesondere nach der Fusion von Alcatel und Lucent.

Alcatel-Lucent offers a very nice salaray to begin with and very diversified job opportunities in the field of telecommunications, Especially after the merge of Alcatel and Lucent.

Cons

Die Joblage wird konstant schlechter. Die deutsche Abteilung hat eine Entlassung nach der anderen, und es ist keine Besserung in Sicht. Ich arbeitet vor und nach der Fusion von Alcatel und Lucent, und die Situation des Konzerns ging seitdem steil bergab.

The job situation is constantly getting worse. German departments had layoffs after layoffs and it is not getting better. I worked there before and after the merger of Alcatel and Lucent and corporate situation has been in decline ever since.

    Pros

    Die Arbeit bei Bell Labs hat mir die Gelegenheit verschafft mit brillanten Leuten zu arbeiten, wobei ich viel von ihnen gelernt habe. Ich hatte die Möglichkeit mit Leuten aus aller Welt zu arbeiten.

    working at bell labs gave me the chance to work with brilliant people, learning a lot from them. had the possibiilty to work with people from all the world

    Cons

    Manchmal spürt man deutlich den Druck. Präsentationen und Berichte haben strikte Deadlines, außerdem ist es Forschung, das bedeutet es ist ein ständiges „machen und rückgängig machen“...

    sometimes you feel the pressure, presentations and reports have strict deadlines, and it is research, so it is a continuous "do and undo"..

  2. I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Climat professionnel
    - Entreprise mondialement reconnue
    - Beaucoup d'opportunités pour développer vos compétences
    - Vous apprenez à être responsable, beaucoup de choses dépendant uniquement de vous
    - Bons salaires

    Selon moi, ALU est une entreprise dans

    *Professional environment
    *Globally Reputed enterprise
    *Technical environment
    *Many opportunities to develop your skills
    *You learn to be responsible as many things depend solely on you
    *Good payscale

    In my experience, i found ALU to be a place to present your technical skills (development and scripting, strong theoretical knowledge on telecom and on protocols) and also participate in new project management techniques like Agile method, where we had a scrum of 3 weeks in general.

    Cons

    - Le travail se fait souvent sous pression
    - Très souvent stressant
    - Parfois, les compétences demandées sont trop élevées... pas facile pour les débutants
    - Instabilité financière depuis quelques années maintenant
    - Des licenciements en France également

    *Work is often under pressure
    *Very often Stressful
    *Sometimes the skills demanded are too high..not easy for beginners
    *Financially not stable since some years now
    *Layoff done in France as well

    Advice to Management

    Pas de conseil en particulier, juste espérer que la crise financière passe rapidement et qu'ALU continue de délivrer des services de qualité à ses clients.

    No advice in particular. Just hope that the financial crisis gets over soon enough and that ALU continues on delivering quality services to Clients.
