Executive Secretary (Former Employee), Murray Hill, NJ – October 30, 2013
Pros: great benefits.
Cons: downsizing efforts
I grew up in this company and was given great opportunities to advance my skills. I enjoyed working for the various lawyers and learned so much from each one of them. I have life long friends that I met while working. We worked hard and we were rewarded for the hard work. The salary was great. Once the economy changed, the company changed which made – more... it a very stressful place to be. Starting approximately in 2007, downsizing efforts began which made my job very hard. Because I was in the legal organization, we worked closely with the HR organization during that time. It was very hard to see so many of my colleagues loose their jobs. – less
Product Manager, CDMA Radio Access Networks (Former Employee), Murray Hill, NJ – October 30, 2013
Pros: working from home
Cons: company stability, advancement
Many layoffs and management changes... Definitely not for the better. People grandfathered in make great salaries, the new employees do not. Many people get promoted with no financial increase but with more responsibility and a title change.
Excellent interpersonal relationships at working level, challenges with management and vision
Director, Global Customer Messaging (Current Employee), Plano, Texas – October 29, 2013
Meetings and calls for customer and sales activities, planning for upcoming events and targeted "attack" plans pulling in or creating a toolkit of resources (campaigns, workshops, business cases, competitive insights). I've learned the value of relationship building across the organization to increase success. One group cannot operate in a silo, but – more... together with other cross-functional teams, we can make an impact. The most challenging aspect is the inability of management to recognize the power of working together and how the constant organizational changes have impacted employees. That being said, my team and many of the people I work with on a daily basis are always teachning me new things and encouraging me that we are doing the right thing. – less

Alcatel-Lucent is an excellent company. Since I worked from home, a typical day for me begins with a logging into the secure work site and then checking and responding to emails and voice messages. Next, I check the my calendar for daily meetings. Much of my day included meetings, working supply chain issues and writing presentations to keep upper management – more... abreast of new developments and/or issues. I worked on multiple projects so there was little free time during the work day. – less
Integration Specialist (Current Employee), Москва, CEN – October 2, 2013
Pros: good working atmosphere, nice people, continuous professional growth
My work includes extensive business trips to different customer locations. I started in 2000 as a field engineer and my main responsibility was deployment of PSTN switches, network equipment, upgrades of SW, HW works and network troubleshooting.
Currently I do IP/MPLS network deployments, GSM/UMTS network elements commissioning and customer support.
There – more... is a good culture of sharing professional knowledge in Alcatel-Lucent, so I could always rely on my colleagues and they could rely on me.
The most hardest part of my job is a psychological pressure during night works on life telecom equipment. Any mistake during such work could lead to a traffic loss and serious complains from the customer.
The most enjoyable part of my job is traveling. Visiting customer sites I meet new people, discover nice cities and countries.
Alcatel-Lucent allays supported me in my profession growth. During my employment years here I attended many courses, workshops and on-job trainings in Canada, Germany, France and Belgium. – less
