    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic European based company focused on skills and culture without the overly overt, necessity of degrees and diversity requirements seen with may other U.S. based companies. Great benefits, bleeding edge product and great people.

    Cons

    None. Just don't confuse HMD with actual Nokia. (Networks)

    Advice to Management

    Learn from past mistakes. Keep European flavor.

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    After the purchase of Alcatel-Lucent the portfolio is really loaded giving Nokia a great chance to take market lead in several segments
    Salary and benefits are among the best

    Cons

    After the purchase of Alcatel-Lucent there have been many decisions for what to keep in the portfolio and the staff numbers of the combined companies. This is being done as thoughtfully as possible. However this is still a cause of stress for many.
    There may be frequent changes to portfolio and staff for the next year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing decisions don't seem to factor in life events the employees are going through. This is particularly impacting the North American staff due to the inevitable to move of jobs to lower cost countries. These decisions are not easy and you cannot avoid them but the sense is that they are not really looking at the personal side.
