    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent

    Pros

    Good place to work. Excellent benefits. Flexibility of work hours & work at home schedules.

    Cons

    No sense of shared purpose, its become a very virtualized company where conference calls are the norm rather than face 2 face contact. Much change in organization structures from Business units, regional services centers, and sales.

    Pros

    Reasonable work hours although things can get hectic at certain times of the year. If your colleagues are smart, you can learn a lot from them as there is a lot of emphasis on doing things methodically.

    Cons

    Due to current cost cutting measures, very little opportunity to visit trade shows and industry events to keep up to date with the rest of the communications industry.
