    I worked at Nortel Networks full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nortel was a Canadian icon with plenty of intellectual property. A lot of money was spent on R&D & it owned many patents still in use today.

    Cons

    It's unfortunate that mismanagement & the financial crisis finally put this company into bankruptcy. Selling the right line of business of at the right time could have meant that other lines of business would continue to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obtain information & make a clear decision. Don't freeze when put in a position to determine a company's future.
