    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for about 5 years and enjoying my journey till date. The Product that I'm working on has a very fast-paced development and testing cycle. So, there's a lot of work and new learning all the time. You can always ask for a change OR more responsibilities. Being proactive in taking multiple projects OR doing beyond what you are expected to do is very much appreciated and encouraged by the management. Subordinates/Immediate peers are very friendly and supportive. Team Leads, Managers, and even Directors and Vice Presidents are very approachable.

    Cons

    Nokia is into challenging market and has though competition.
    Base pay is decent, but the additional compensation/benefits are not great.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees and provide means to get technical exposure beyond internal company work, example - developer/tech conferences, get hands-on to trending software infra, languages and tools.
