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

    Pros

    Field engineers have a pretty much outlined process for handling all jobs. Salary is moderate compared with same market players. Employees are encouraged to grow in the execution of their roles within the company.

    Cons

    As with most other employers, procedure for even the most routine requests follow some bureaucracy and can be frustrating sometimes. Attention to detail sometimes makes ALU slow to meet the ever-speeding market demands especially for customers' needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Processes should be much more dynamic as the market evolves in today's era of business. In as much as possible, delivery within schedule should be considered a true winner.

    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, more and more open communication to the employees. Great people to work with across the globe. Interesting and challenging projects in challenging market. Company in better spirits after the CEO change.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to get, you need to take care of your career, as no one will do it for you. Established huge mid-management layer - doesn't consist of bad people, but you spend more time reporting than actually working. Workforce reductions are a constant threat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many double reporting: it's clear that visibility into business is important for executives, but the changes in the org mean that you are often asked to do everything twice. Less CSR, more actual business!
