    I've learned a lot, but not always in the best possible conditions. It is always to tight schedule, feeling behind.

    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.
