    I have been working at Alcatel-Lucent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provides all MNC corporate rules. Creates a moral value. Always informs about org progress for global, but not national.

    Cons

    Never focus on individual employee performance and decide employee capability based on manager's feedback. Never do the counselling for employees those who are going to resign. Always follows lengthy process though it has plenty of user friendly tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Request to conduct employee survey on every 6months. To ensure whether all the employees are really satisfied with organisation and organisation is giving a chance for the employee for career growth and innovation.

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

    Pros

    - Great teams, with inspiring people from whom you can learn a lot.
    - Interacting with people from other locations across globe is professionally and culturally enriching experience. Some chance of even meeting them in person.
    - Good pay and many employee benefits.

    Cons

    - Given its a big company there will be process to follow and things may be slow but that's not to say there is no freedom to try out new things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was flexible working hours but end hours were late. Work life balance is a key issue. Guess this might have changed over the years.There is tough competition in Indian IT but still need to recognize that employees have families and should not take away their family weekend time.
