I worked at Nokia as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They generally are very good to their employees. Salaries were good, and everybody that I met was absolutely fantastic.

Cons

There were some ridiculous rules at the office, and sometimes you can get overwhelmed with bureaucracy to the point where it makes it difficult to get actual work done.

Advice to Management

Remove some of the process in doing things to make progress and work easier.

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

    Pros

    This company is one of the best that I have every worked for, I have an experience of over 10 years working for many companies and sectors but honestly NSN is the best.
    Flexible working environment, access to a great deal of information and training, very good working relationships, unlimited opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits are not very competitive, bot bad though. the reason might be the financial struggles that the company has been going through in the last 3 years with serious issues in terms of affordability.

    Advice to Management

    none
