I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern

Pros

senior people are very helpful and willing to teach. It is still a good place for research and learning. Arrangement for your own work is flexible.

Cons

People are worried about cutoffs which keeps on during the past few years. The company lost a lot of famous guys who worked here of tens of years.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule with telecommuting (in some regions)

    Cons

    Going bankrupt
    No raises or bonuses
    Corrupt incompetent management with loads of nepotism and creating a toxic work environment. They're glad to lose millions of dollars while they drive ALU into the ground while they focus on petty politics.

    Advice to Management

    Resign immediately if there is any hope at all to prevent bankruptcy.

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First of all, Bell Labs is a big name that can be put on your resume. Second, in Bell Labs, there are lots of influential researchers actively working, and you can talk, learn and cooperate with them.

    Cons

    It seems the Bell Labs is losing its former influence on its research area. It used to be the leader in science and technology. Now it is facing great challenge from its competitors like AT&T research Lab, etc. Besides, the finance supporting the Bell Labs, or the Alcatel-Lucent, is having a tough time that it has to cut-off 6000 employees globally last year.
