"Nokia was a great company to work for. There are lots of opportunities there and many really bright folks. The only problem I found with working there is much of the meetings one attends are with folks overseas, making for odd meeting times. All, in all, I really enjoyed working for them."

Nokia Employee

"I had a good, long career with Nokia and was part of the transition of the Mobile Phones group into Microsoft in the spring of 2014. Nokia was a great company to work for. Excellent people, strong social ethic, good pay and benefits, and although it may not have seemed it later, very innovative. As an employee I always felt supported and yet was given very good advice when I "needed it". Nokia now (2014+) is not the Nokia of "then", but I do hope the qualities I appreciated are still there!"
