I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Extremely flexible, teleworking available to many. Excellent benefits and regular employee-appreciation activities. A great first corporate experience. Had company continued on, I would definitely refer friends.

Cons

Some teleworkers were "online" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without recognition or relief. The company crumbled far faster than most were led to expect.

    I have been working at Nortel Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very dynamic environment and different races of people. They're not software/hardware centric as Nortel delivers telecommunication system. So far I enjoyed working there perviously

    Cons

    No people moving there. Only size reduction. People worry about whether they will have a job or not the next day. Not much fun to work lately

    Advice to Management

    Young engineers are important to the company, please consider that.
