Pros: great team experience and free team building events.
Cons: quarter ends had long hours.
My typical day at work was to review stats, to ensure that we would meet our one time deliveries. Help team members with the portfolio's and projects that the were working on to ensure that the customer would receive their material on time. Assist with high profile conference calls to help set up projects and resolve any issues that we might have. Example – more... shortages, equipment failure etc. The hardest part of the job is for me was putting the job down and going home, especially if we had issues with a project. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all the people at Alcatel and help accomplishing the task at hand. – less

Great people to work with, and daily works are well managed. I have worked in this company for years and enjoy the time here. There is nothing wrong to let me leave Alcatel, just the company has the decision to reduce the Ottawa site head count which may impact on our Wireless division. This is worldwise company, Ottawa site is relatively a small side – more... especially in Wireless Group. – less
