Pros: pay & benefits
Cons: overexpectations of upper management
Often high stress levels, short due dates. Constantly pushing training even if that training doesn't apply to your job requirements. Great co-workers and immediate management, but upper management was overbearing.

A great international telecommunications company but undergoing dramatic internal changes.
Solutions Architect - Global Deployment Expert (Current Employee), Washington, DCJuly 8, 2014
Pros: leading edge telecommunications equipment provider with strategic counseling.
Cons: misaligned internally
The most exciting piece of this position was being able to work internationally whilst being based in the U.S.

A good place to work for (starting around 2016)
Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Plano, TXJune 11, 2014
Pros: telecommuting, work/life balance
Cons: everything else
I came into Alcatel-Lucent when the company was struggling financially. Once we gained a new CEO, confidence in the company surged and I believed everything would be better.

Long story short, because of ALU's soaring costs, the company has suspended raises (even with promotions), given bonuses very sparingly, and reduced benefits (including 401k compensation). – more... This results in overworked and underpaid employees, which dampens company morale and makes the workplace strained.

I do believe the company's cost-cutting measures will result in the ultimate turnaround and ALU will be a successful company: however, that will take a couple of years. The company needs to (and eventually will) learn how to treat its employees better as many left the confusing re-organization structure for better opportunities (myself included).

The company supports telecommuting and working at home which is very helpful for those who would have a long commute or need a flexible schedule for family arrangements. – less
