Pros

Good market position as #2 supplier in telecom infrastructure equipment.

Cons

This is a joint venture company between the cellular infrastructure divisions from Nokia and Siemens. They are still trying to find their way in melding the 2 companies together. They need to get better processes in place and improve quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace your newly acquired Motorola Solutions employes. (NSN acquired MSI infrastructure division in 2011)

    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.

    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.
