    I worked at Nokia Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I joined siemens which was merged with Nokia to NSN and now its just Nokia. The work was not very challenging but the atmosphere was great. And so were most of the employees.

    Cons

    Its offshore development and hence most of the serious work was done in Germany/helsinki or maybe I was in the wrong team !

    Good company to be associated with, you can gain lot of knowledge.
    you will be kept occupied and depends upon the management some managers are really too cool and friendly.

    internal politics sometimes doesn't notice the employees who really put their effort and work hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more compensation and benefits required and management should look onto the work/life balance of the employees
