    I worked at Nortel Networks

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with. Lots of telecom history and industry veterans who still work there under the Ericsson banner. I wish them well.

    Cons

    Lots of good talent held back by lack of accountability in project execution, and multiple layers of incompetent middle management. Horrible executive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None- the corporation is dead, and management deceived its employees all the way until the bankruptcy began. RIP Nortel.
