    Great people, ahead of its time in many ways, unfortunately poor management at the top lead to bankruptcy.

    Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Sacramento, CA

    I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stayed away from me and let me work. My contract had me working onsite at a fortune 500 corporation and they were very happy with my work, so Nortel Mgt had no reason to bother me.
    6 month contract extended three times into two full years.

    Cons

    Nortel Enterpise Operate was contracted to provide onsite services, they sub-contracted through a technical staffing company. After a couple of contract extensions they made me switch to a different staffing company which made me go through crap to get hired through the new company because their standard contract was so assinine that I would not sign. I made them rewrite 17 points of the contract or I would not continue the successfull work I was already onsite and doing. They had to cave, but how stupid. Then, Nortel Enterprise Operate never told the orginating staffing company what was going on and abanded them, and me to tell them I was no longer working for their company.
    When the contract for the client finaly did end, Nortel provided me with no support in finding another position within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All are gone and/or merged into AVAYA.
