Pros

Varied and interesting technology; an opportunity to learn a lot.

Cons

You never know if you are in the next round of lay offs.

Advice to Management

ALU's expertise is technical, not managerial; remember that while deciding who should go and who should stay.

    Pros

    Primary technology company in an exciting industry. ALU is on the forefront in technology evolution on a big scale. Its worldwide presence gives everyone the chance to a global exposure on the different markets and interesting career evolution possibilities.

    Cons

    The merger of Alcatel and Lucent costed a lot of substance to the combined company and the subsequent restructuring efforts resulted in a loss of customer focus. As of today the company is not sufficiently listening to its markets.

    Advice to Management

    You have to listen more to your markets and that is also an organizational question. Solution selling and services offer in the vertical markets (complete outsourcing, complete turnkey projects) are of utmost importance if you want to reverse the decline.

  2. Nice environment to work
