    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.

    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

    Good work-life balance. Very diverse employee population.

    Cons

    If change is unsettling to you, this is not the place to work. Change in management, reporting structure, business line, etc. Nokia is constantly restructuring, reinventing, renewing, rebalancing.....and this can cause uncertainty and loss of productivity. Maybe this is a by-product of the tech industry, but know going in.

    Advice to Management

    You must be doing something right as Nokia has been around for 150+ years!
