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Cons: low morale, no concern for work/life balance, management thought process is outdated, too many lifers/not enough young minds, little innovation taking place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

Logistics Manager (Former Employee), Accra, GhanaAugust 25, 2014
Pros: strong cohesion and understanding within the business unit
Cons: limited opportunity for growth due to reduction of nation wide contracts
Alcatel-Lucent is one of the largest equipment vendors in the Telecom industry. The company had a stable presence during my time there but lost out on contracts that resulted in a limit to the amount of work available.

Half of the workers were from French speaking countries and this offered me the opportunity to improve my proficiency in the language.

I – more... gained an invaluable understanding of Logistics and how to plan, track and manage human resources and equipment. This allowed me to grow as a leader and equip myself with the tools I needed to become an effective project Manager. – less
