    ConsLow pay. Little to no advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't need geographic analysts anymore. You just need drivers to drive the cars and can outsource the coding overseas for cheaper.

    Great before Nokia.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsIn the Information Systems Division the environment is great. Mostly everyone is very knowledgeable and are willing to drop things to help you when you need it. It's also pretty relax unless users are becoming a nuisance.

    ConsAcquired by Nokia and the Nokia way is destroying the company. Becoming strict with vacation days and changing the workflow and using products that are not as functional as previous technologies. Also not hiring in IS division due to reconstruction of division.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more workers and the ones that have been working hard. Keep fighting bad decisions by Nokia.

    A company that provides opportunities to grow or to coast - your choice

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAn opportunity to work for a global company and get solid, meaningful international exposure and experience. You will be working in a field that is dynamic, cutting edge, and changing rapidly.

    ConsSignificant shifts in strategy - it is not "ranging in", it is more "Ok, let's try this..." A manager can miss performance targets wildly and there are few visible repercussions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
