I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good working environment, Good work and life balance

Cons

No career advancement, lacks of competency development, lacks of experience specialists

Advice to Management

ALU has a lot of ineffective mid-level management which should be trimmed down. With current ALU financial condition and management approach, ALU is in bad position to retain and hire best talent in the industry.
