Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager  in  Richardson, TX
Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in Richardson, TX

I worked at Nortel Networks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Talented and highly educated work force.
Multi-cultural, team-work oriented employees.
Competitive pay and good work and life balance
Ability to move to other departments and locations for career advencement

Cons

Corrupt management. John Roth and his entourage ruined the company.
Grossly over paid for its acqusitions (anyone remember Bay Networks acqusition) at the height of the internet bubble. How can you appoint a corrupt CFO to a CEO position after John Roth left.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retire with the millions you stole from shareholders and employees and please do not manage another company. You guys ruined enough lifes.
