    Pros

    Nortel used to be a cutting edge company with top quality switching and telephony products. Its strength was in its R&D and quality. From an employee perspective, there was good internal communications and some very bright people.

    Cons

    Nortel was very political. Many times bad decisions were made because it was not considered appropriate to disagree or share unpopular opinions. Everyone just went along with what was assumed to be the direction top management wanted to take...regardless. Nortel forgot what it was in business to do. It lost it's focus.

    Advice to Management

    Create a solid mission/vision statement and get back to your core competency - outstanding technological solutions. Then creat an evironment of openess to gather input and make sure business tactics are sound for long-term future growth.
