    "OK if your lazy but highly unorganized and full of red tape. Almost impossible to get a raise."

    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy and flexibile work hours. Good vacation and benefits.

    Cons

    Chance of promotion or a raise are few and far between. Terrible communication from the top and a bloated middle management layer. How about 4 different bosses in 2 years and never having met one face to face.

    Bad company results, constant layoffs and shrinking stock price makes for ultra low morale and you always wonder if your next to go.

    Company is full of managers with no people skills that have simply been promoted due to length of time employed.

    Advice to Management

    Trim middle management and make employees having a local boss a priority.

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

    Pros

    engineering-minded company (both pro and con). Can-do attitude, true international company with opportunities to work in distributed teams.

    Cons

    Can be to internal-focussed, not enough consideration for market feedback.
