    I have been working at Nokia Networks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    work life balance is usually great, good work environment. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    confusing, frustrating, irritating management decisions. No real structure to anything that is being done. Lack of communication between groups will be the downfall of the this company. Vision for the future is too nokia specific don't know how to create a clear vision and be aware of where the real competition is hiding. Every single engineer will become extremely frustrated at some point at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to what is already out there in terms of ip/cloud transformation than look at your own transformation and see your misalignment, you will not create the future with your vision, but you must learn to exist in it.

    Pros

    Nokia is very innovative and is investing in many exciting technologies including LTE, LTE-Advanced, Internet-of-Things, etc.

    Cons

    Nokia seems to be driving most key projects from Finland rather than leveraging their global talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage your global resources (i.e., there is more to Nokia than just Finland!).
