Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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.

    Pros

    International company, Good Salary, 1.5 week paid vacation, various benifits.
    It's a good place to work, and you will also have some chances there.

    Cons

    Promotions is very difficult, even you work very well. I know some people who works there about 8 years, but still not get the promotions.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how to say, but ALU should do some enhancement on their process to make employee work more efficiently.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits. Competent co-workers. Relaxed environment, most of the time. Alcatel was a place where there was much to learn, and still can be in the right position, and for the right person.

    Cons

    Management lacks direction, and no longer seems to care about workers, who are the ones who get the job done for them. Certain people seem to get catapulted to the top while others see no way for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    It might be too little too late, but management needs to start listening to employees again, and trust their judgment and expertise, instead of driving the direction of the company from a black box, and stifling creative thinking.
