Used to be a great company & industry. Telecom bubble burst & cheaper competition has taken its toll !

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Murray Hill, NJ (US)

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

ProsGreat benefits package, proud heritage - Bell Labs, great team & flexible schedule, still has the innovation humming but on a back burner.

ConsCheaper overseas competition & foreign government supported companies has taken its toll on the business. The North American & European economic struggles are certainly not helping. The industry & company continues to struggle ever since the telecom bubble burst in early 2000s.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe number of employees left is the lowest it can go. Invest heavily in the next generation changing technology and own & protect it- innovation is the key to break out of the downward spiral OR acquire enterprise business competitor OR sell the enterprise business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
