Good bye Nortel....

I worked at Nortel Networks

ProsBest Reasons: Opportunity to move into different positions within the company. Rewarded for work on special projects. Laid Back environment.

ConsMassive Layoffs since 2000. The employees that were recently laid off prior to backruptcy recieved no severance. There were too many layers of management.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many layers of management. Too many acquisitions that did not add value to the company. Failure to merge with other players when concolidation occured.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
