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

Pros

my job allows me to telecommute. company culture allows work life balance. flexible hours. I can take time during the day to do things as long as I get my job done... even though the organization is big, i have to say that there is good process in place but not too much burden.

Cons

too many layoff's - force management, performance program... no raise for many years... the normal big company problem - we have to work with people from all over the world sometimes with time difference it is difficult to get stuff done as a local culture. there is still issues with alcatel and lucent merge of company the culture and so many different ways of doing things...

    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.
