No opinion of CEO

I worked at Nokia full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Bringing together the combined development teams and markets from Motorola, Nokia and Siemens should have built a stronger joint venture than the individual smaller groups.

Cons

Since the joint venture was unable to make the transition to being a sustainable, profitable company, the reaction to lay off 17,000 seemed to be a panic reaction to right size.

    Pros

    Multicultural working environment. You work with people from different countries, like Germany, Finland, Poland etc, and if you are interested, you get chances to know these foreigners, learn their background, and their cultures

    Cons

    Working environment is bad. Most R&D engineers do not have their cubicle. they sit in working benches side by side, face-to-face in labs, with equipments running around them, like people working in assemble lines in factories.
