Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC

I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Payed well and was big enough to allow a variety of career experiences that created very good employee mobility. It was a terrific place in the 90s and the learning environment was dynamic and challenging.

Cons

Towards the end, the whole company got into bunker mentality and became more and more internally focused. This is the point at which many customers wanted other options. It was also very political in the core. We had a great reputation as firefighters. That's because in a crisis, all the organization BS was set aside and we focused on the task. After the crisis, we reverted to type.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No longer relevant.

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