Stable place to work
Wireless Administrator Solutions Architect (Current Employee), Galveston, TXJanuary 7, 2014
Alcatel Lucent is a stable place to work with a high good reputation. But Senior Engineers that make things happen are not properly valued accordingly

Too many layers but it is getting better
Test Engineer (Current Employee), Longview, TXDecember 1, 2013
The hardest part of my job was getting the direction or knowing which direction I was supposed to go. Upper management was always changing. They have reduced my levels of accountability from 9 to 5 which has simplified many things. However, they are trying to save money and the first to go is always lower seniority people.

invovative, Challenging and enjoyable
2G/3G/LTE Radio Network Designer (Current Employee), EgyptNovember 19, 2013
The work day starts with checking the email for updates whether it is concerning the on-going projects, information related to techno or product updates and of course the top management announcements, released from time to time for example to: highlight the company strategy or enclose the results of the previous quarter. The team holds a weekly meeting – more... to share best practices and updates on ongoing projects.Then I get down to working on the on-going project, the work on the projects involves first analyzing of the customer's request then thinking of an innovative and cost effective solution. Sometimes the project involves more than one colleague in such cases a closed meeting is held for brainstorming on the best solution to meet the customer's needs, the environment in the team is extremely friendly. The management is flexible as well, employees are allowed flexible working hours according to work needs and also they are afforded one day of tele-work per week. The most enjoyable part of the job is the part where you brainstorm to find the best solution to meet the customer needs. The hardest part is that since we are working on bids with usually strict deadlines then I would say the long working hours involving weekends and the struggle to provide a perfect solution within these strict deadlines, although this being a challenging motivating part as well. – less

Great place to work
Executive Secretary (Former Employee), Murray Hill, NJOctober 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
