Pros

Great benefits, great work environment, telecommute is fine, management is easy to talk to, high salaries, encourage internal training

Cons

If you don't like to telecommute, not the job for you. Bonuses are erratic. Different divisions can be difficult, i.e. old Alcatel workers and former Lucent don't always play nice with each other.

    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 Management

    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.


  2. Mis-Managed, but great place to work

    Pros

    - excellent flexibility w.r.t working hours - great pay - great vac - they'll pay for you to go to school - you get to work with some of the smartest people on the planet - family friendly - most managers promote family-first when personal issues arise

    Cons

    - company is mis-managed from way above - recent constant barrage of layoffs - company hasn't made money in years, future is questionable - recently no/little raises and/or bonuses

    Advice to Management

    - get your act together. Low-level technical leadership is great, but the higher you go the worst it gets.
