The overall experience is good as we have a multi vendors in our network. Each day I learn something new from the network. All the colleagues are supportive.

Pros: dragonwaves social committee held frequent activities for all employees to participate in.
A typical day at work is liasing with the sales executives,and logistics teams ensuring all purchase orders received met the contractual obligations between the company and the customer.

Order Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Kanata, ON – May 30, 2012
Pros: hour lunches
Cons: repetitive work
A typical day at work would consist of get sales orders from the management team to process into a system called SAP. However the sales orders are the same type of orders because our account is Sprint (telecommunications company) and they want a lot of the same work done in several areas in the United States. So because of that our work is very repetitive. – more... I've learned how to use SAP and how to work in the corporate culture. My co-workers are awesome, we get along very well and I would say the most enjoyable part of the job is when our lunch comes, because the co-workers and myself get to laugh and talk about things not related to work. There isn't a lot of movement within this department, therefore it's a very entry level kind of job. – less

Physical Design Engineer (Current Employee), Naperville, IL – April 3, 2013
Pros: good benefits & wages
Cons: poor job security
Work for AT&T-Lucent-Alcatel (ALU) for 33 yrs. and have seen many changes through out my career. Unfortunately the company is not doing very well currently due to competition over seas such as China, India and Mexico. Labor over seas is much cheaper making it difficult for ALU to compete at US standards. Benefits and wages are very good although job – more... security is very poor. Can't bet on having a job from year to year making it difficult for planning a future. – less
