I worked at Nokia full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good people
Lots of talent
Not a backstabbing environment

Cons

- Too many reorgs
- Sometimes have folks of questionable talent or who lack motivation and work ethic in Sr. roles
Waste an awful lot of money on European managers brought stateside -- the comp and benefits are ridiculous for some of these people...and the company is not one with a lot of extra cash right now
- Too slow in execution
- Opportunities for advancement are limited right now
- Lots of layoffs due to market position

    I have been working at Nokia full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Particularly nice benefit program. Impressive vacation time potential for those who have put in the years. Great people who desperately desire to see this company return as the market leader. Come on NOK stock!

    Cons

    Room for advancement and individual innovation. However, once you hit a particular career level, it becomes necessary to either manage a group or move to Finland. Concerned that not everything is being done to reach the America's market, but I know it can't happen in one year or even a few years.
