I have been working at Nokia (More than 5 years)
Pay and benefits are great and I believe the only reason many stay with the company. Facilities? This is a hard area to describe/measure with tunnel vision.
Cons: no true career development, unless you know the right people. Do not expect to advance based off merit, dedication and hard work. Some may but appears to be a good ole boy system as is the case with many companies. Any merit increases are few and far between, negotiate well coming in including bonus payout % as well as time off.
Advice to Management
Cycle current management to opt for a lean towards more Finish management. I suspect in the hay day of Nokia success, there must have been a stronger group in place. From my perspective, persons who have a true vested interest in the company and its success - call it National Pride, may be the better persons to sit in particular roles. Do not promote persons into roles which they can not handle. Engineers who are outstanding and head-shoulders above the rest may not cut it as a line manager. Some can, however they may be more suited as a Sr eng or Tech lead. Discuss with them first what they would like to do and provide options so that if you place them over a group, if people management is not for them, allow "a way out" so that they may return easily to the role best suited for them. Operations is a large and complex role, ensure you have the right management in place to lead in this area. Seasoned persons whom have already learned the hard lessons are better suited here. It may not be wise allow line managers to learn on the fly or "the hard way" at the detriment to your employees and the company. I would like to see this company succeed. I would like to write or revise a new review 5 stars, exceed the maximum allowed character count in the Pros section and repeat one word 20 times for the Cons section 20 word minimum - "None".
