Nokia cares only about the bottom line and not the people. They do not care about culture, core values, integrity or culture.

ability to work on different projects and acquire knowledge in different type of technologies.

Independent and Self Motivated
Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILOctober 22, 2015
Its a Great Multinational Company to work with . Gained lot of experience from colleagues all around the world. But everytime, the focus is on the bottom line. A project needs to be driven to closure before embarking upon a new one. This was never considered a priority.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Not a great facility to work at

Nokia had true Challenger mentality
Account Manager II (Former Employee) –  AtlantaSeptember 29, 2015
Nokia 2010-2013, developed in all employees a "challenger mentality" as the company was transitioning to bring Windows Phones to market. The company pushed their individuals to think outside the box regarding how to effectively communicate the new value proposition of their wireless devices, driving creativity and teamwork as they battled to re-establish themselves in the market

Below average work environment, but generous vacation
R&D Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILOctober 2, 2015
Was nice working there when we were able to manage our teams independently. But that changed when executives decided to completely change our development process. Also, there was no training and no opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Generous Bonuses, vacation
Cons
Loud Open Office Concept, Bad Work/Life balance, no advancement, little training

Highly intensive R&D engineer work and demand schedule
R&D Engineer, Program Manager, R&D Line Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington Height, ILSeptember 23, 2015
Benefit is good with matched 401K, many vacation days, while global competition and cross global functional team collaboration is very intensitive, needs to work on weekend and vacations. Very agreesive business strategy to merge companies and development sites. Set each location office as independent end to end development organization sometimes promote the competition among different locations.

Each scrum team is in the a big table, no individual cube, from VP to system engineers/program managers have very small cube with one small desk, not much layer of job title, everyone in engineer sector is called R&D engineer, program managers are R&D line manager.
Pros
Benefit
Cons
Intensive work schedule

Good place to learn
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irving, TexasSeptember 8, 2015
Opportunity was great. But most of the engineers have around 15+ years experience. Which is awesome to learn from, but at the same time feel it leaves not much for the up and coming engineers.
Pros
Decent pay, great vacation, benfits (dental/Vision/PPO), 401k
Cons
Tend to work weekends and/or late into the day, focus more on bug fixes than how to reduce the number of bugs next time around
