    I have been working at iconectiv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Critical win for robocalling business. New head of Sales has brought positive change - company seems hungrier. Several interesting areas that can be good opportunities. Some fresh blood coming in which has helped. Strong financial performance continues

    Cons

    Some of the Bellcore/Telcordia old guard are fighting against change. Company is run by finance, not engineering or people who actually understand the products. Office is half empty most of the time and many people leave by 3pm

    Pros

    Ericsson acquired Telcordia brought in logical approach to external view of the global business and shook the status quo to let go of the Bell Core glory days.

    Cons

    Rusty and bitter executives who despise being owned by a Finnish company. Old angry white men's club, if you are liked you get pass on incompetence.

    Pros

    They have products. Wait.. they're not even good...

    Cons

    Come here for career suicide. This place is terrible. They have silly little motivational events which are funny because everyone is like 50 and dead inside. Don't work here, I pray you don't. Corporate politics, stagnation, weak products. No innovation. Lack of leadership or mentorship. NO OPPORTUNITY. I can't go any longer about how bad this company is.

    I have been working at iconectiv full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dedicated employees, tremendous knowledge and expertise. Flexible work hours and recently new building. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Too many staff cuts to effectively manage work; placing greater demands on remaining employees. Management does not value its employees. Morale is low. Great people are departing on their own for better opportunities and salary. Recent re-organization is having the effect of finger pointing rather than achieving corporate objectives. No real focus on product evolution and business transformation. Inability to make any decisions of consequence. Give poor grades to CEO as many of challenges are direct result of his policies.

    I have been working at iconectiv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a company which (as others have commented) has operated in a fairly stable environment with little competition for some time. Perhaps it did get a bit stale/lazy in the past. The new investment did not make for an easy ride and there has been some considerable change in personnel, but this was essential. Things are beginning to change, some interesting new projects/business coming online. The company has also adopted a more global outlook in the past couple of years. One or two new additions in senior roles seem to be willing to disrupt the organisation and force change - let's hope they stick around longer than some.

    Cons

    Still too many 'lifestyle' employees who want to show up at 9:30 and leave by 3. Small handful carrying the load for everyone else.

    I have been working at iconectiv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. The people - there are many dedicated people ensuring the success of projects and willing to go the extra mile. 2. Flexible Work Environment - it's more about getting the job done than punching a clock. 3. Striving to find new growth - there's an increased willingness to invest more.

    Cons

    Several revenue streams are due to mature products, which leads to less innovation and more cost cutting/margin improvement efforts - which can mean layoffs.
