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

    Pros

    - Great teams, with inspiring people from whom you can learn a lot.
    - Interacting with people from other locations across globe is professionally and culturally enriching experience. Some chance of even meeting them in person.
    - Good pay and many employee benefits.

    Cons

    - Given its a big company there will be process to follow and things may be slow but that's not to say there is no freedom to try out new things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was flexible working hours but end hours were late. Work life balance is a key issue. Guess this might have changed over the years.There is tough competition in Indian IT but still need to recognize that employees have families and should not take away their family weekend time.
