re: Russo Takes Place of Holder I am laughing hysterically....

"Analysts see it as a positive move. "If anything, it saves money," says Cobb Sadler of Deutsche Bank AG."

Yeah, wait until next performance eval. Let's see how much of a raise she gets and how many are laid-off...Just like Nortel...

re: Russo Takes Place of Holder Pat probably is saving the company money. Holder probably expected another few million as an incentive to stick around. But since the company is about 100,000 people smaller than it was, who needs him? Does anyone know what he did anyway?

Now the question is whether Pat Russo can actually run operations. She will have to set goals and call priorities for Bell Labs, Wireless and Wireline, while at the same time figuring out how to reduce costs in the service and manufacturing operations. And don't forget the CEO function. She'll be a busy lady.

I bet she picks a favorite and elevates him/her to the COO position within the next year. Any takers?

re: Russo Takes Place of Holder One of the main problems in the US and almost all of its institutions is that it is not merit based. Unless the US mends its ways and institutes/encourages merit based appointments, the kind of corruption we see at Lucent, Nortel and many other countless US companies would stay with us all the time.

It will be very hard for Mrs. Russo to manage Lucent because of lack of technical skills. No one seems to know what is happening within Lucent.
The revenue is still not very good. Lucent seems to have lost every that once it had,

re: Russo Takes Place of Holder "The revenue is still not very good."

The revenue is barely good anywhere in the Telecomms industry.

But improvement is a better measure of how the Lucent's/Nortel's etc are doing.

Lucent: 16% increase in revenue this 1/4 - I would say that is pretty good.....

re: Russo Takes Place of Holder I'm glad you still have your job there, but 16% growth is sales only, it doesn't include the investor washouts from new stock issuances.
