Approves of CEO

Pros

High technology products and services helping people communicate in all regions of the world. Constantly challenging environment with support from management to grow the business.

Cons

Performance reviews were an "event" some years with some managers but well worthwhile with managers who took objective setting and management to those targets seriously.

Advice to Management

Manage cash better - led to bankruptcy protection status. Significant effort and committment seen even once bankruptcy protections status was in place.

    Pros

    Nortel was a great company to work for with great products and services. I personally enjoyed the work-life balance that my manager encouraged.

    Cons

    It was unfortunate that years of gross mismanagement from the early 2000s plagued and eventually bankrupted the company in January 2009.
