    I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for. People would retire from it once they got hired. Benefits and culture were great.

    Cons

    The high valued acquisitions of late 90's and the tech bubble burst changed it all. The company started a downward spiral that it could not get out of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company went bankrupt in Jan 2009, so this section is not applicable.

    Pros

    Great place to work with many smart inovative people. Good Benefits. competitive salaries. Great products and a wonderful customer base

    Executive churn and mismanagment caused the downfall of this company. Late to the market with products because of a lack of focus and comitment.
