    I worked at Alcatel-Lucent full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Alcatel-Lucent has one of the best benefits specifically 401k, health insurance and number of vacation days. Employees are very nice (depending on your department) and management is very flexible. ALU has a family oriented work schedule.

    Cons

    I was working with this company for more than 15 years but my salary did not increase that much. They gave bonuses from time to time but not every year. No increases was given to employees for the last five years. Employees morale is very low.

    I've learned a lot, but not always in the best possible conditions. It is always to tight schedule, feeling behind.
