I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good people to work with in most cases.

Cons

Unstable management - doesn't have a vision they stick with. Management is anti-north amaerican. They have publicly said NA is the place to lay off personnel because they don't want to deal with EU unions and SE Asia is the favored region for any new hires.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of some VPs and Directors with few, of any reports, and keep the people that do the real work.

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

    Pros

    Good people that were not empowered to get the job done. Flexible work schedule with either flex time or tele-commuting possible

    Cons

    Upper management was out of touch with what the employees needed to make the company successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to grow the company and make money not just by reduction in workforce.
