Great team, very nice offices with perks, exciting challenges, but slightly dampened mood.

I have been working at Nokia as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Your coworkers are incredibly talented people with diverse backgrounds from all over the world. You get to work in a beautiful office with many perks. The opportunity to make big differences changing the company's direction and outlook is there, and is very exciting.

Cons

The layoffs during the time I was there created a nervous, dampened atmosphere. The "Goodbye after X years" emails got very depressing after the first dozen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow up a little closer with interns -- give them a list of things to handle, instead of one at a time with dead time between.
