    I have been working at Nokia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work Life Balance for few and flexibility

    Cons

    People at senior Positions for over 15 years continue to work at higher salaries with less then 30% contribution. The capable person will be forced down with Friends being chosen over right candidate. Internal job IJM is completely fraudulent as 98% of jobs are filled with friends. Even right candidates are not given option to interview. The excuse is that many applications. HR has not heard software and apps usage to filter out resumes. People who are very capable are politically pushed down to the extent they leave the company. Senior management on the verge of retirement have a plan of moving outside India to increase their working age.

    I have been working at Nokia full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary is good and constant growth is present if the employee keeps taking new challenges. Variable pay /bonus is ok. Not so good.

    Cons

    There are people working here for 15 years 20 years /30 years, like govt employees, unnecessary getting high pay and work done by them is just 50% if you compare to their salary. For the bonus , everytime management comes up with some crying story.. like how they are in loss, even people /BUs who are working hard and making the profit for the company are not getting good percentage. Management takes decision to invest profit to new R&D, instead paying off the hard working BUs and employees, making them look for better oppertunities. Hike : Hikes are good here , but not according to industry standards, after you reach a point , there is no more you can expect, so people after 8 years of experience, the motivation to work is really absent.

    I worked at Nokia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent company to start your career

    Cons

    The incentive for the employees is paid for the performance of the employee at the end of the year. But if the employee leaves 15 days before Dec 31st, the company hr refuses to pay them . This is absurd and this is not communicated earlier as well when the paper is put down. After the employee works day in and day out and leaves the company as he/she finds better match and also better value of their qualification, the HR doesnt talk to the employee at all during exit trying to find the reason and cuts corners like this.
