Software Customer Application Engineer (OSS) (Current Employee), lebanonNovember 20, 2014
Working in alcatel lucent for 9 years gave me dedication to job market in telecomunication industry. Alcatel gave me a great experience with multicultural customer in the globe. as a daily work with Alcatel provided great deal of experience in dedication and high deal of performance and integration management. I learned to be a proffessional in OSS – more... integtration, system and network administration, training big amount of resources, and customer experience. Co-workers has a sense of great deal of communication, and cooperation. The enjoyable thing about my work in alcatel is the high performance and motivation. – less

Good place to work
Software developer (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 24, 2014
Pros: interesting projects, open to new ideas, transparency of company business state.
Cons: ramp up time and training resources not sufficient for all new employees
Great product ideas and design.

Good people, collaborative work environment. Training ad-hoc, but good efforts by department and experienced employees.

The tools were not always the best such as the in house "easy test" which was garbage.

Priorities were constantly in flux and a lot of time was wasted switching back and forth between them.

Agile – more... team trust violated by one team member which was not addressed.

High turnover, due to financial issues of company.

Good commitment of employees to the company but not reciprocal. – less

Productive and rewarding place to work
Sales Administration Coordinator level 4 (Former Employee), Kanata, ONMay 22, 2014
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

Dull Coop
Software Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Kanata, ONJanuary 21, 2014
First coop was inexperienced. Not really given any challenging work. Felt more like a weight to the team than an asset. Would have really appreciated some neat projects to work on or some encouragement.

Software Development (Current Employee), Ottawa, CanadaJanuary 17, 2014
Cons: job security
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

QC - Testing Associate (Current Employee), North York, ONAugust 21, 2013
Assembled inverters (domestic,commercial and industrial for company AEI) tested and attended to all defects. Everday learned new technics and identified faults. We had to mange the availability of parts and also had to cordinate with co-workers. The hardest part of the job was to detect the fault and to identify the faulty part. The most enjoyable part – more... was when the fault was removed and the apparaus was working as desired. – less
