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

Pros

Benefits, work/life balance, flexible work schedules

Cons

Top Heavy and upper management protect their own

Advice to Management

Layoff some of your own, not just the worker bees. How many levels of upper management should there be? Evidently Alcatel-Lucent thinks 3-4 or more. No wonder they are losing money.
