This company is gone now

Solutions Consultant (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

ProsIt was a wonderful place to work with innovative, brilliant thinkers and an active participant in the creation and expansion of the information superhighway. Great work/life balance and great middle management.

ConsWell, corruption at the highest levels sunk this company. Fudging financial numbers and stuffing pockets of the top tier destroyed Nortel. There are no jobs to be had here. Goodbye, Nortel.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
