Very repetitive work environment
Order Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Kanata, ONMay 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

SAP Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GAOctober 15, 2014
A global leader in telecommunication and working for this company has given me more opportunity to learn and grow as a person.

The knowledge that I have gain from people that I have worked with over the years has meant more to me then anything I could have learn in a classroom.

Decent place to work
Prototype / Reworker Assembler (Former Employee), Westford, MAOctober 9, 2014
It was interesting working there. Did many different jobs, repair, inventory, ordering parts etc. The co-workers were great to work with. We were a small group so we worked together.
The hardest part of the job was trying to get replacement parts for board repairs. Many of the parts were obsolete.
My favorite part of the job was doing board repairs – more... and updates and working with the engineers. – less

Good with the Bad
Technology Executive (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: salary
Cons: low morale, no concern for work/life balance, management thought process is outdated, too many lifers/not enough young minds, little innovation taking place
The earlier days of Lucent and then the merger times were okay. Post merger into the 2010 time frame + totally sucked. After spending 10+ years there I had the opportunity to see a constant decline in staff, morale and innovative thinking.

Supervisor (Former Employee), Andover, MASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: excellent employee recogniton, above average compensation
Learned many things while working for this company, started as a production associate , advanced through the years to a transportation associate and then to a supervisory program and promotion to supervisor in 1995.Management was very helpful with mentoring and women had good support from their peers in management. .

The hardest part of the job was – more... not always being able to spend enough time one on one with employees. There was time for large group meetings but not always the informal chat.

The most enjoyable part of the job was accomplishing our goals as a team and being recognized by management in that manner. – less
