    I have been working at Nokia Networks

    Pros

    Good for a internship, not full time.

    Cons

    Management is very bad, don't care about anyone but themselves, they hired people with astrology majors because they "knew someone" for a engineering position. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great people

    I worked at Nokia Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is challenging with fairly up to date technology
    The engineers are excellent and very experienced
    The compensation and benefits are very competitive

    Cons

    There is very little US based executive management.
    There have been constant layoffs both under Motorola and Nokia mostly due to off-shoring.
    Decision making at the executive level seems to be slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive management says they value the quality of the previous Motorola products, but they don't value the experience of the engineers that built the quality products.

    I worked at Nokia Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are the best. Most managers I worked for would give you an assignment, tell you when it was expected and then let you go. They were there to help but did not micro-manage.

    Cons

    In 2009 work started to move overseas. The overseas managers did not trust the U.S. workers. In the end development was moved overseas (after we trained the overseas workers) and Boca Raton, FL. site was closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Till 2009 things were great. Then the desire to get less expensive labor took over. The upper management needed to trust local management more.

    Pros

    Salary, people who were part of the team

    Cons

    Remote Finland management, demanding, not inclusive. Cannot say I know anyone in Irving who likes working there, especially the acquired Motorola staff. Never had a one on one discussion with my supervisor from Finland.
