Off hours, no advancement, high turn over rate
Traffic Editor (Current Employee), ChicagoFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: supervisors, co-workers, benefits package
Cons: everything else
Being a traffic editor at Nokia may be the most under appreciated but overworked departments in the company. You are expected to work off hours, no holidays, no normal weekends (unless you magically get Saturday/Sunday as your off days), no half days, and if you want to take any time off you have to use your own PTO as there are no office closings or – more... work from home options. If it snows 2 feet of snow overnight you are still expected to show up to work even if it means driving on unplowed, whited out roads, which has happened quite a few times this winter.

The job itself is a joke. Most zones covered are not very active so early in the morning or overnights. Yet start times still are as early as 4am or as late as 11pm. The pay is not great considering the off schedule and personal toll the off shifts take on people. (sleep schedule, sitting in a chair for 8 straight hours, etc) Despite plenty of employees' complaints regarding the schedule structure, holidays/weekends situation, pay, etc the managers' responses are always "we can't do anything about that". They wonder why employee morale is low, and it's because of a lack of effort to appease anyone.

There is no advancement within the department except for becoming a "senior editor", a position they created when people complained of no advancement within the department. Needless to say, the job doesn't change if you are a senior editor and once you are a senior editor there is again, nowhere to move up in the department. It is as dead end as a job can get and the turn over rate is constant as people realize the problems and realize in order for a career they have to look elsewhere. The people who stay are either complacent or just waiting to get out. The high turnover rate plays a large role in why policies aren't changed, because managers are aware that most employees complaining will be leaving soon. – less

Hardware Technician (Former Employee), Berkeley, CADecember 31, 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Nokia. Honestly, the best company I have worked for. The owners would come visit the warehouse often, and would be very friendly and open about any suggestions or concerns. I got my hands on a lot of different jobs, allowing me to fill up resume more. The coworkers are young, with lots of friendliness and jokes.
