    Global Company; strongly technology. Good brand recognition. Willing to go after new products and solutions with a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Full line of products.

    Company is going through growing pains with merger of Alcatel-Lucent. Many locations need to be combined in order to create a unified company.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate as much as possible. Many people will not feel they are part of this large company and will tend to disconnect. A clear well communicated strategy is critical

    Fantastic European based company focused on skills and culture without the overly overt, necessity of degrees and diversity requirements seen with may other U.S. based companies. Great benefits, bleeding edge product and great people.
