Pros

Great company coming back. Good Sr. Management. Great Technology. Good benefits and environment. Solid on Enterprise solutions. Getting stronger on Services and Applications. Strong Partners in Microsoft and IBM. Leapfrogging the competition. Improving channel partners. Strong global presence. Good opportunities for development. Good people quality.

Cons

It doesn't use Marketing to their benefit. Not easy comeback from the reduction in previous years. As a 100 years plus company there are always things to improve.

Advice to Management

Sr. Management has a good plan to get Nortel back in track. They are listening to employees and focusing on the business that makes sense. Very transparent for employees, partners and customers.

    Pros

    The company offers a substantial amount of vacation time and job flexibility, They also will allow you to telecommute so long as you do not abuse this priveledge.

    Cons

    There currently are not a lot of opportunities for advancement since the company and the industry is shrinking. The stock price has been bad, but this really doesn't matter much to most of us since the company does not give many stock options to its employees.

    Advice to Management

    That you will not be able to turn this company into the General Electric model. Also, it would be a good idea for them to quit taking such big pay raises and bonuses when many employees are being layed-off and are not receiving much in the form of monetary bonuses at the current time.
