Good company but facing lots of competition

Product Market Manager (Former Employee)
Piscataway, NJ

I worked at Telcordia

ProsThe work is interesting and the people are generally very skilled and knowledgeable in their field. The compensation and benefits are good, but New Jersey is very expensive. Downsizing has resulted in a smaller group of people who must achieve a great deal, so even new employees are given lots of responsibility.

ConsTelcordia still relies on their previous role as in-house R&D for the regional Bell companies, even though those companies are, by and large, gone. For new customers, they must compete and their competitive position limits career advancement. Also, many of the current managers are hold-overs from the Bell System days. They have few contacts in the industry at large and are not plugged into networks that can held Telcordia succeed.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake products competitive with best in class. Focus energy and resources on several products for new markets that can succeed on a broad basis, around the world.
