    I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay was competitive, the chance to learn different skills and technologies was unmatched. Great atmosphere and collegial, beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Obviously.. absolutely no idea when it was all going to implode, which it did.

    Advice to Management

    Should have avoided some bad acquisitions, became too spread out and the finances were a mess. Never able to make a consistent profit.
