I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The professionalism of the folks in the trenches.

Cons

Quantity over quality, two-levels of approach to customer-facing documents -- one being well-designed collateral material and the other being cut and paste Word documents.

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

    Pros

    my job allows me to telecommute. company culture allows work life balance. flexible hours. I can take time during the day to do things as long as I get my job done... even though the organization is big, i have to say that there is good process in place but not too much burden.

    Cons

    too many layoff's - force management, performance program... no raise for many years... the normal big company problem - we have to work with people from all over the world sometimes with time difference it is difficult to get stuff done as a local culture. there is still issues with alcatel and lucent merge of company the culture and so many different ways of doing things...
