    Current Employee - Senior Network Architect in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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