Pros

Great 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.

Cons

It 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 Management

Sr. 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.

    Pros

    Work life balance, gym, cafeteria. Management is ecofriendly and encourages working from home in order to save on transportation costs. The company provides educational opportunities to its employees for professional certifications. A changing environment seems to be the norm as most of Nortel's solutions are cutting edge.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility. Most upper positions are filled with Canadians since this is a Canadian company. The company also has too many systems in place and is converting to an ERP. This is causing a bit or turmoil in jobs currently as employees try to convert and manage business as usual while undergoing change.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the worker bees. They know what the strengths and weaknesses are of the systems. They also know what productivity you are losing or gaining by converting to another ERP.

    Family-friendly company; lacks in opportunities, training, and career advancement

    Pros

    The company offers a substantial amount of vacation time and job flexibility, They also will allow you to telecommute so long as you do not abuse this priveledge.

    Cons

    There currently are not a lot of opportunities for advancement since the company and the industry is shrinking. The stock price has been bad, but this really doesn't matter much to most of us since the company does not give many stock options to its employees.

    Advice to Management

    That you will not be able to turn this company into the General Electric model. Also, it would be a good idea for them to quit taking such big pay raises and bonuses when many employees are being layed-off and are not receiving much in the form of monetary bonuses at the current time.
