    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, global leader in telecom, good exposure to different technology and processes, decent training available

    Cons

    No future for USA employees, software quality suffers because global partners don't have good communication with all development teams and huge code churn with no controls, code architecture not designed well

    Advice to Management

    Re-think your current strategy - software quality is still suffering, Seems like your focus is on just buying as many competitors as possible, that's not going to win in the end with a disjointed and dysfunctional team remaining.

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are good and the technology is leading edge. Much of the development is in WCDMA and LTE technology areas.

    Cons

    The company is European based and is not very proactive in hiring in the US. The growth potential in the US is mostly in the areas of customer support as opposed to actual development.

    Pros

    Filling this out b/c I was forced to add a review to regain same access I've had for awhile now.

    Cons

    See above, need 5 words

    Advice to Management

    Glass doors - don't do this, it discourages your user base. You'll only get honest reviews if people want to give them
