    somewhat interesting work

    Cons

    (specific to MEN division)
    'Nortel' culture and old boy system still exists.
    little opportunity for advancement in career. Too many old Nortel hands hanging on.
    Outdated views of development.

    Advice to Management

    Create professional advancement opportunities To be fair they have tried via some internal certifications and courses.
