    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great flexibility in work schedule/location/work balance. I've been treated well thru the many years with AT&T/Lucent Technologies/ALU. Vast number of projects throughout the company so you can find things that interest you.

    Cons

    ALU has been through a lot through the years (split with AT&T, merger with Alcatel) and now the pending acquisition by Nokia. Tough years have resulted in not a lot of salary increases or promotions (that is changing this year with limited salary increases).
