"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."

"The good old boys club needs to go! Qualified people need to be given the opportunity to succeed and not the brown-nosers."

What do you like about working at Nokia?

"The R&D and new technology was great. The upper management (folks from Finland) were great."

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

"Nokia as a company is a great place to work. It needs to stay away from the deadly office politics and watch out for the vulture culture."

What don't you like about working at Nokia?

"The problem, or the bottle neck, was with the middle management band. The good old boys club was always there, and brown-nosing was your key to success. As for an example: 1. A person with secretarial experience was hired and promoted to lead a part of the S/W Test group; 2. A person with a biology degree was hired and promoted to lead a part of the S/W Test group. This not only introduced setbacks, but also encouraged back stabbing and vulture culture."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Hire ethical people who are well-qualified and have proper college degrees in the field. Please cut the cancerous part of the middle management and remove the good old boys club. Let qualified engineers shine and be productive. Nokia is a good company. However, the middle management is destroying the original Nokia culture."

Senior Test Engineer

"Good Old Boys Club."

"Would not work at Nokia again. Good money, but poor people skills."

What do you like about working at Nokia?

"The 6 weeks of vacation time, and beautiful location. The performance bonuses were AWESOME! Serious money to be had there."

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

"Ask lots of questions about management goals, technical direction required, balance of work and life (they say they balance it, but don't practice it), and make sure you are clear about what area they are hiring you for."

What don't you like about working at Nokia?

"Poor upper and middle management with unreasonable expectations of schedule. Changed product directions often as though they didn't have a clear plan. Middle level managers accepted rumors about people as fact during reviews. ALWAYS negative feedback on reviews even when I was team leader and wanted to put praise on my team member's reviews. Favorites during merit raises without consulting team leaders on actual performance."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Advertise the incentive bonus program before work begins. Resolve the bonus results before the next quarter begins. Positive praise sometimes is worth more than just throwing more money at people! You are allowed to give more than one person on a team a high exceeds rating if more than one person has worked hard!"

Software Engineer

"VMware is better."

Contractor
in White Plains, NY

"Nokia has strong mobile marketing programs."

Quality Control Analyst
in Argyle, TX

What do you like about working at Nokia?

"I loved the exposure to people."

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

"Ask questions and do a cost benefit analysis. Focus on the company's consistency and quality, and how your skills can improve those areas."

What don't you like about working at Nokia?

"I believe the company can do better with employee relations, which, in effect, will improve overall production. However, the overall job is good."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"You are as strong as your weakest link, which is, in this case, the employee relations in the manufacturing sector. When employee relations were good, production increased by 30%, which translates into higher levels of quality control and employee retention. That, in turn, improves the base quota. Unfortunately, within our branch that housed up to 3,000 employees, employee relations were below average 90% of the time, and potential was lost."
