I worked at Nortel Networks

Pros

High technology products and services helping people communicate in all regions of the world. Constantly challenging environment with support from management to grow the business.

Cons

Performance reviews were an "event" some years with some managers but well worthwhile with managers who took objective setting and management to those targets seriously.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage cash better - led to bankruptcy protection status. Significant effort and committment seen even once bankruptcy protections status was in place.

    Pros

    Salary Level was okay
    Worklife Balance was good
    Global Reach and Multicultural nature of the interactions made it interesting.
    Work was stimulating

    Cons

    That is went into administration. A great shame but went the same way as Kodak and Polaroid - did not adapt to the market. A strong over reliance on a few customers meant when the tide went out, they were exposed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not relevant now as they have been dispersed to the four winds. Employ the senior people with some caution really as they did not make enough changes.

    Pros

    Management leave you along for the most part as long as you are delivering to the customer.

    Cons

    Some of the products did not meet the customer's expectations in term of services or technology. It tough to compete with less features as other vendors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to ensure better features are in the products. Management need to develope employees and worry less about cost.
