I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, great work environment, telecommute is fine, management is easy to talk to, high salaries, encourage internal training

Cons

If you don't like to telecommute, not the job for you. Bonuses are erratic. Different divisions can be difficult, i.e. old Alcatel workers and former Lucent don't always play nice with each other.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    - get your act together. Low-level technical leadership is great, but the higher you go the worst it gets.
