Nortel is a good place to work!

I have been working at Nortel Networks

ProsGreat company coming back. Good Sr. Management. Great Technology. Good benefits and environment. Solid on Enterprise solutions. Getting stronger on Services and Applications. Strong Partners in Microsoft and IBM. Leapfrogging the competition. Improving channel partners. Strong global presence. Good opportunities for development. Good people quality.

ConsIt doesn't use Marketing to their benefit. Not easy comeback from the reduction in previous years. As a 100 years plus company there are always things to improve.

Advice to Senior ManagementSr. Management has a good plan to get Nortel back in track. They are listening to employees and focusing on the business that makes sense. Very transparent for employees, partners and customers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
