Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits, management is hit or miss. Training is getting better. Continuing ed used to be great, but I'm not so sure now.

Cons

The technology you use at Alcatel-Lucent is very isolated. Having a great job here usually means your skills will not apply anywhere else. The 5ESS product I worked with was based off technology decades old, and was a bit of a Frankenstein monster.

Advice to Management

Weed out the non-performers. There are plenty of people who gave up and just show up.
