"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."

"I disliked the major disconnect between corporate HQ and the soldiers on the ground. We would spend weeks, if not months, waiting for approvals on anything. A lot of poor decisions were made in HQ without regard or knowledge of the ground war and the consequences. Essentially, everyone at the San Francisco site got screwed. There was no HQ loyalty to the staff regardless of being the best performing NOKIA site worldwide."

"Shatter the glass ceiling, come down off the VIP cloud and see what your company and workers actually does. Then HQ decisions would have some substance."
