Research engineer at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs

Research Engineer (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

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

ProsVery interesting research environment, I participated to lots of international projects, which is very stimulating. We have the ability to work for many subjects. International working environment with lots of colleagues and partners from different countries.

ConsThings for Alcatel-Lucent are not going very well today. Bell Labs is a bit preserved in the storm, but it may not last several years like that! The futur of Bell Labs may be uncertain...

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management should have a more precise vision of the orientation the research should take.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
