    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.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
