    I worked at Nortel Networks

    Pros

    I enjoyed the company of my co-workers, but unfortunately with upper management and the economy that didn't end up mattering for very much.

    Cons

    Massive layoffs, bankruptcy, the end of the company. Worthless stock options, corporate raiders. And seven words more of reasons not to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting IT and sales staff isn't the best way to get out of bankruptcy. Nor is selling the only profitable divisions.

    I worked at Nortel Networks

    Pros

    Phenomenal immediate management. Worked as part of high perfomance team. High recognition of employee value.

    Cons

    The company went bankrupt; hence highest level of management not so capable.

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO
