    Good experience technically. Accounting and business leadership not what it needed to be.

    Pros

    Nortel was known for it's technical solutions providing good opportunities for development.

    Cons

    Nortel executive management and the board either couldn't see the market transition or was unwilling to fully commit to it. Eitherway, the result cost all of us our jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A comment here really doesn't matter anymore given they are now bankrupt and just working to shut the doors. It would have been great if Nortel had been more open with the realities.
