I have been working at Nortel Networks

Pros

great experience great company company. The benefits were greats the environment was great.
I really thinkNortel should come back and canadian govt should back it

Cons

too focused on cisco and forgot to create a date centric work force. Wireless plans were greats but lacked the aggression of ericsson and nokia

Advice to ManagementAdvice

should have bought companies that were complementing not just for the sake of buying.
ALU and NOKIA are good examples on how to survive.
