    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed work culture. 4 weeks of vacation. 7.5 hour work days. No micromanagement. Great for work life balance.

    Cons

    No growth in the foreseeable future for the company thus for many of its employees. Company is going through a lot of layoffs right now and cutting many product lines. Overall mood is not optimistic. Employees are not proud of their employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a bit more process. People come to work and take things very easy. This is a private sector company yet the work environment seems like a bureaucratic government department's.
    Hold more regular 1 on 1s with the employees to track progress and catch issues early.
