    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Alcatel-Lucent has provided me with a graduate school education on their dime. Plenty of room for advancement. A lot of opportunity for training. VERY mother friendly.

    Cons

    She's like an old air craft carrier... Takes a LONG time to turn around. Some antiquated thinking with people who have worked for 25+ yrs at the same company. Internally we're still two separate companies (Alcatel and Lucent) on many levels.

    Advice to Management

    Stay current. Remove even more middle level management. Sure seem to be way too many people earning almost $200K/yr to do just about nothing.


  2. "Nice place to start an academic career"

    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.
