    Former Employee - Hardware Development Engineer in Murray Hill, NJ

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

    Pros

    Competing in leading-edge technology such as next-generation wireless communications and internet of things (IoT). Focused on following documented development processes. Recent acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent focused on speed of merger and reduction of "former-Nokia" and "former-ALU" way of business.

    Cons

    Nokia advocates open-office environment, which I find distracting

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can literally do nothing and get paid well if you know how to be a politician

    Cons

    No loyalty to hard working employees, middle to senior management only concerned with lining their pockets through bonuses paid out for headcount reduction

    Advice to Management

    Avoid demotivating people through constant work place psychological abuse, threats of forced relocation, yearly restructuring, false promises. Manage your directors. They are so disconnected with individual contributors you maybas well save some money by letting them go.
