    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.

    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.
