Good place to work
Software developer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON24 October 2014
Great product ideas and design.

Good people, collaborative work environment. Training ad-hoc, but good efforts by department and experienced employees.

The tools were not always the best such as the in house "easy test" which was garbage.

Priorities were constantly in flux and a lot of time was wasted switching back and forth between them.

Agile team trust violated by one team member which was not addressed.

High turnover, due to financial issues of company.

Good commitment of employees to the company but not reciprocal.
Pros
Interesting projects, open to new ideas, transparency of company business state.
Cons
Ramp up time and training resources not sufficient for all new employees

Productive and rewarding place to work
Sales Administration Coordinator level 4 (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ON22 May 2014
My typical day at work was to review stats, to ensure that we would meet our one time deliveries. Help team members with the portfolio's and projects that the were working on to ensure that the customer would receive their material on time. Assist with high profile conference calls to help set up projects and resolve any issues that we might have. Example shortages, equipment failure etc. The hardest part of the job is for me was putting the job down and going home, especially if we had issues with a project. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all the people at Alcatel and help accomplishing the task at hand.
Pros
Great team experience and free team building events.
Cons
Quarter ends had long hours.

Dull Coop
Software Quality Assurance (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ON21 January 2014
First coop was inexperienced. Not really given any challenging work. Felt more like a weight to the team than an asset. Would have really appreciated some neat projects to work on or some encouragement.

Software Development (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, Canada17 January 2014
Great people to work with, and daily works are well managed. I have worked in this company for years and enjoy the time here.
There is nothing wrong to let me leave Alcatel, just the company has the decision to reduce the Ottawa site head count which may impact on our Wireless division.
This is worldwise company, Ottawa site is relatively a small side especially in Wireless Group.
