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

Pros

Very 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.

Cons

Things 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 ManagementAdvice

The management should have a more precise vision of the orientation the research should take.

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

    Pros

    Above average benefits. Good environment and facilities at campus.

    Cons

    Big, bureaucratic. Lots of people with little education and/or real knowledge in positions of power just because they've been there long enough. They manage their groups trying to protect their positions and hiding their incompetence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When making decisions to restructure, don't think in terms of getting rid of people who cost the leasts to get rid of....think of who'll be able to provide the least value to the company in 5 years.
