    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I have been working for Alcatel-Lucent for 20 years (was with Newbridge when it got acquired by Alcatel) and I have learned a lot while I was there. I have been giving the opportunity to leverage my expertise, perform continuous improvement, move to position that was extremely challenging for me and use of my leadership skill to build and deliver great products.

    Cons

    One area that the company shall improve, it is probably why they have done a major re-org in 2012, is that the vision of the company was unclear and the objectives for my department were definitely not defined properly. Other than that, I have enjoyed working at Alcatel-Lucent and it is a great company.
