Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Vision is created at the top but lower level managers are not held accountable for results.

    I have been working at Nokia Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    NSN is making a come-back after many repetitive bad quarters. It's gaining back market share and pushing hard against Huawei in a fight for the second position.

    Cons

    Complete absence of career path. Jobs are assigned based on connections. Perseverance and hard work will almost never pay off. The waves of headcount reduction seem to target the least protected people (and often the most hard working and honest). Employees are expected to work late on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the entire corrupt and utterly useless HR, and get some talented people on board. This company needs to set up real career paths for its employees. HR being "sharks" is very 1990's.

    I have been working at Nokia Networks full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    It is now all about making money and no longer about having a good work-life-balance. They will bleed you dry and then lay you off. They now have what is called a Needs Improvement competitive mindset, where they make it so that no one shares information or knowledge just to remain employed. No longer work as a team or support each other. More like work till you can't work no more and you have to leave. So much has changed, and not for the better. So many have left on their own to try and find a more caring company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate your employees. Don't make it so they have to compete with each other for their jobs, then you have no collaboration. People are so unmotivated and unhappy.
