    Pros

    Nokia Networks has decent benefits and pay with a good work/life ratio. There is only one known area with potential growth and that would be in Irving Texas

    Cons

    Euro and Asian-centric. Not many opportunities for US-based employees.

    Advice to Management

    Although there is a perceived benefit to using cheap labor in Eastern Europe and Asia, there is one adage that always hold true - you get what you pay for.
