    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 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.
