    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance, flexible work schedules

    Cons

    Top Heavy and upper management protect their own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoff some of your own, not just the worker bees. How many levels of upper management should there be? Evidently Alcatel-Lucent thinks 3-4 or more. No wonder they are losing money.

    Pros

    Work is great! Lots of excellent technologies to work with. People are good too.

    Cons

    Netting big leaps in growing the team/sales is not well rewarded. Very closed advancement architecture. Requires to be well connected with a senior exec in order to advance, or, have the right manager to believe in you. Not great for people who don't want to play the games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For upper management, you are doing a great job! By not rewarding the people working hard, short term numbers look good.
