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

    Pros

    Nokia Networks has the best work-life balance amongst the telecom companies. It is a great time to be in Nokia as they have the money right now and the consolidation period provides job security.

    Cons

    The company was in doldrums for good 4 years from 2008 and had to cut on almost all of the perks. The salary hike was negligent around that time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the company doing well for last 6 quarters, better policies needs to be formulated, which are employee friendly. All the team members need to be held accountable for their work.

    I have been working at Nokia Networks as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    work life balance is good.

    Cons

    No salary hike for contract employees.field employees do the work done and manager takes the credit.Management has set a salary benchmark for contract employees which is intact since 8 years. Whereas their is a salary hike for the on-roll employees every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just enjoy a life of contract employee for a year.

    Pros

    Good salary,Enough flexibility and freedom to learn

    Cons

    Be a butter chapp to your boss,otherwise he may feel bad about your behaviour.Even If you complaints to senior mgmt against your line managers in appropriate / communal behaviour,they won't listen.They will advise you to either look in another business line or look outside "Just because he's a manager ".

    Can't say about all... but there are bastards,beware! Most importantly they can harm you in your probation period as they are the one's who have to say yes/no to continue your career in Nokia...Strange but TRUE :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't just listen to these fellows about someones performance specially when it comes to silly topics which they amplify it under "Behaviour competency".Always open your ear and senses to understand and feel the things.Otherwise ppl knows what happened to Nokia mobility.. ..

    Pros

    Pros: only if you are a Senior member (lead/manager or above)
    : enjoy like picnic,
    : work from home (no work at all so no need to be available)
    : most of the facilities like home lease etc.

    for engineers: not applicable

    Cons

    for engineers:
    no life or facilities for engineers. focus is on cost cutting and cheap labor. no space for lunch, no work-space for freshers and they are siting in meeting rooms/cafe area, 4K employees sitting in the building having capacity of 3K. weekend work and late stay frequently. too much politics. no ethics or values.

    only if you are a Senior member (lead/manager or above)
    Not applicable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on innovation, technology atleast on nokia values and ethical business. atleast stop doing politics. dont do anything.
