    I worked at Nortel Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can't say enough great things about Nortel. I worked there from 1997-2001 during the peak years of the dot.com era. The work environment was excellent, employee support was excellent, salary was excellent.

    Cons

    When it all ended :(

    Advice to Management

    You were about 10 years ahead of the market with your product.
