    Pros

    I resonate with the corporate slogan of "We create the technology to connect the world". The company today is a combination of many, many different corporate cultures and is making conscious effort to merge them and create a new culture going forward.

    Cons

    For many, 2017 is an unfortunate year as it is a year of reductions after the merger with Alcatel-Lucent. There are still opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the efforts to create a new Nokia culture.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I did. I found it challenging and rewarding. I liked the people that I worked and the the customers . I have connected with most of these people. The company changed over the years from Lucent Technologies to Alcatel-Lucent then again to Nokia. I've seen the company change focus with management changes. The story is still unfolding.

    Cons

    -improve marketing
    -work/life balance issues
    -employees are disconnected from upper management and not made aware of organizational information in a timely manner. Rumors are rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Nokia doesn't believe that remote workers are a good idea. They should move into the 21 Century.
