    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. "Good Company"
