Used to be a great company & industry. Telecom bubble burst & cheaper competition has taken its toll !

I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits package, proud heritage - Bell Labs, great team & flexible schedule, still has the innovation humming but on a back burner.

Cons

Cheaper overseas competition & foreign government supported companies has taken its toll on the business. The North American & European economic struggles are certainly not helping. The industry & company continues to struggle ever since the telecom bubble burst in early 2000s.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The number of employees left is the lowest it can go. Invest heavily in the next generation changing technology and own & protect it- innovation is the key to break out of the downward spiral OR acquire enterprise business competitor OR sell the enterprise business.
