"I've worked since 1999 at NSN and it's a great company. It's why I stayed 14 years in the same company. High level management put in place an environment which allows us to give our best. Salary is nice and there are bonuses each time we win a new deal because of customer satisfaction. I recommend this company."

Product Manager

What do you like about working at Nokia?

"So many teams that are working on future opportunities and so much to learn."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Coming in low... you will have to work your way to the top slowly... but coming in high will give you a better chance, but you will need to shine quickly and learn Nordic/Euro politicking quickly (not a bad thing). Not sure that good talent in mid level and lower senior ranks is recognized easily. Will need to keep an eye out for great opportunities to shine or create one when the time is right."

What don't you like about working at Nokia?

"Lots of uncertainty and a fair amount of inefficiency. I would say that I have less control over my destiny... and would much prefer to have the ability to more directly steer the future of our successes and failures. We have become a bit too large and the CEO is on the right path in downsizing/right sizing but there is still some need to trim, but trimming correctly and keeping real talent that is focused on a clear future opportunity that is core to Nokia's mission."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Reduce the number of teams doing far out research and focus on near future and how to monetize these opportunities being invested in. Additionally, I would invest more heavily in the concept of collecting and aggregating context and other data for an aggregated use for Nokia users. (all for one and one for all = future of consumer wants)."
