    I have been working at Alvarion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The R&D team are nice, want to succeeded and push forward the development, beside that nothing is good,
    Too many employees leave in short time, very unstable work place.

    Cons

    Very bad company, the management team are very poor, they know nothing about the market and the business , change their opinion every week without understanding.
    Sales and marketing have no experience, they don't know the job at all

    Advice to Management

    Go home, let someone else manage the company, take your stuff with you.

    Pros

    Alvarion was a great company with talented people and despite it being a relatively large company there was a healthy cross-functional culture with "i can do attitude".

    Cons

    Poor management decisions which lead to the downward spiral of the company. Unlikely that Alvarion will be able to regain its position in the telecommunication market as a result.

    Advice to Management

    As a result of poor management decisions, a lot of people left or made redundant. Learn from your mistakes.

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, interesting and promising technology

    Cons

    Got side tracked from their main mission, and then didn't keep up with the US carriers' move to LTE.

    Advice to Management

    How could a company with $170 million in cash, no debt, and 850+ employees around the world when I started in late 2007, go belly-up and shut down virtually all US operations and lay-off 350-400 employees by early 2011 - it boggles the mind.

    Pros

    Technology is great. Learning Wireless Technology such as WiMAX is cool. Over all, employee is nice to each other. The company is heading to the right path. This company will survive for a long time since they manage the company's spending and control product's cost very well.

    Cons

    They are kind of cheap as employee benifit goes. But not the worst. This company is traded on Nasdaq but it runs like a foreign company. Upper managers will suddenly talk in the meeting to each other using their native language. This makes other us employee feel uncomfortable sometime.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to treat employee from different race.

    I worked at Alvarion (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best place to work as you graduate from university. You may learn a lot from networking and radio fields, since the labs offer good equipment to do so and the people that used to work there were extremly helpful. Great people and great environment.

    Cons

    No further employee prospects, low salaries, lots of lay-offs in 2012.

    Advice to Management

    Make better decissions in the future to prevent people getting fired again.
