I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent part-time (More than a year)

- Complacent and political decisions affect innovation and progression

Advice to Management

Alcatel-Lucent is like the place where a lot of old people go to retire. This company needs more young energy to get it jump started. There's not enough innovating and too much complacency.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance : Since the working hours are not very long, and travel is low, the work life balance is good.
    Decent Pay and benefits : Pays above market wages. However no bonuses for the last 3 years
    Decent work pace : Work pace and pressure is normal.

    Cons

    Low morale in the company : A lot of it comes from the fact that its a loss making company
    Low or no Bonus for last three years as compared to competitors : Again, this arises from the fact that it's a loss making company
    Low career growth opportunities : No clear career path. Also, since the company growth is low and attribution is high, not a lot of positions available to grow

    Advice to Management

    Hire more energetic employees who are willing to work hard and smart.


  2. "Soft environment, casual dressing."
