I worked at Nokia Networks full-time (more than a year)

Pros

It's a great global organization with opportunities world wide.
A wide set of large scale products and projects to work on and willing to take on new ways of doing things (like Agile Software Development.)

Cons

Disparate goals in which the teams act as if in silos, making it difficult to provide rapid results for customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to focus on creating their own identity, rather than a mix of joint ventured companies. Determine who they want to be and go after it.

    I worked at Nokia Networks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Bringing together the combined development teams and markets from Motorola, Nokia and Siemens should have built a stronger joint venture than the individual smaller groups.

    Cons

    Since the joint venture was unable to make the transition to being a sustainable, profitable company, the reaction to lay off 17,000 seemed to be a panic reaction to right size.

    Pros

    Multicultural working environment. You work with people from different countries, like Germany, Finland, Poland etc, and if you are interested, you get chances to know these foreigners, learn their background, and their cultures

    Cons

    Working environment is bad. Most R&D engineers do not have their cubicle. they sit in working benches side by side, face-to-face in labs, with equipments running around them, like people working in assemble lines in factories.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
