    I have been working at Nortel Networks

    Pros

    It has quite a few good people in the company, and dedicated to their works, and have been there for a very long time.

    Cons

    It is a very corrupt place, it is basically who you know, not what you know type of environment. The chance of getting promoted is only someone left or died.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your actions have led to the company's bankruptcy. Many people got impacted because of that.

    Pros

    Nortel pays well and there is flexibility for both work schedules and work locations (teleworking is common).

    Cons

    The company is bankrupt and therefore there is limited potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cash is king and M&A is not a strategy that works for Nortel.
