    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, decent but declining benefits.

    Cons

    Poorly managed company that has been and continues to be on the decline. The company provides good pay and benefits but for most disiplines within the corporation it is a very stressful work environment with employees expected to perform at high levels under the constant threat of workforce reductions.

    Advice to Management

    Top management is too slow to react to market conditions to address declining revenue. The primary means of cutting cost is always reducing the middle and lower management workforce while retaining far too many in upper management positions. Top management lacks vision for future growth of the company. Business processes are too complex and antiquated to allow the company to be responsive to customer needs. Development cycles for new products are too long and product quality has diminished over time due to overly complex business processes and the outsourcing of manufacturing to third parties. Far too much bureaucracy with productive employees under the constant threat of workforce reductions is not a recipe for success.


  2. "Great colleagues, great products, will get through the tough times. Chance to work with first-rate technical peers."
