Other Employee Reviews for Nokia

  1. "Great technology company but going through changes"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If you work in mobile networks then this is the place to be, you will work with some of the best minds in the business. NSN's technology (especially LTE and LTE-Advanced) is world class and product line staff are very approachable. The online training portal is excellent and if you are a self starter you can learn a lot here.

    Cons

    The company is going through a huge cost saving initiative at present which means that if you have come from a company that offers a lot of perks you will probably be disappointed at NSN. The restructuring process has been going on for almost a year which in my opinion is too long given that existing staff need to know that their jobs are secure,

    Advice to Management

    Even during a cost cutting phase, staff still need to feel appreciated. This is especially applicable in a competitive industry like technology where you need to attract and retain top talent. There are inexpensive ways of showing appreciation, and those can mean a lot to people that are going through massive change in their working environment.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance, flexible work hours

    Average annual wage increase <3% (haha)

    Cons

    No career path for local employees in Asia

    Flip flop market strategy.

    Too many expatriates who don't understand local customer

    More managers than employees

    Losing market share by the day

    Advice to Management

    Get more local staff who understands local / regional customer's needs

    Trim unproductive employee, too many expatriate managers that only talk, not enough employees doing real execution

    Face the facts and stop twisting the truth (i.e. the CEO classified a quarterly loss as an 'investment')
