I have been working at Nokia Networks full-time

Pros

Better than average 401K match
Bonuses
Getting things turned around - rising while other competitors are falling

Cons

Telecomm is not a high margin business
Still in cost cutting mode for survival
Integration of various companies still occurring and going far to slowly (this killed Actatel-Lucent)
Employee Rating/Ranking system is not functional

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Attrition is high for a reason, yet it's not being addressed. Survival is more than a financial matter.

Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Nokia Networks full-time (more than an 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.

    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)
