Accounts Payable (Former Employee), TexasAugust 11, 2015
Pros: On site Cafe
Cons: Micro-managers, No work/life balance
As a contractor, I would personally NOT work for Nokia full-time and permanent. I get to hear the full-time, perm employees complain everyday about their benefits, their jobs, their leadership and their management. I am glad that I am only a contractor there for a bit longer.

Operations Program Manager (Former Employee), Arlington Heights, ILJune 28, 2015
Telephony and Nokia is a no growth business. Select job functions are well rewarded others you are stuck, where you enter.

Old timers who are there, drawing decent salaries, thus put up with long hours/ off hours work to support the bureaucratic Europen company.

I enjoyed everything about working at Nokia.
Marketing Events Specialist (Former Employee), Irving, TXMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: layoffs
I started in HR at Nokia and was promoted to Corporate Communications. My next move took me to Marketing, which was the remainder of my tenure with them.

Great company to work for and learned and grew alot. I would do it all over again.

Unfortunately, layoffs happened and I was one of the numbers, Marketing is usually one of the first departments that takes the hit, otherwise I would still be there.

This company had a wonderful culture and attitude about its employees and that is why everyone was so loyal.

12 plus hour days. Whatever it takes that day and never address concerns. Management blames all short-comings on field workers and usually fire them.

Territory Account Manager (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: work at home
Cons: advancement in your career was limited
The company had great potential, but they tended to limit themselves due to the overall "boys club" atmosphere.

Management consisted of all men, and 90% of them went to school together or were friends that hired friends.
