Software Development Engineer (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 25, 2014
US government contractor...Tier 2 support Network/Software Engineer, great co worker, great work conditions and staff management and engineering team. Nothing really hard and just freedom and lost of hard work and fun.
CEO Speechwriter, Nokia, telecommute (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 25, 2017
This was a stressful, deadline driven job on a small team, writing speeches for the CEO. A typical day might include developing an outline for an upcoming speech, working with leadership on approval of the outline, fact checking, research, networking with subject matter experts and of course writing.
The hardest part of the job was actually the remoteness and lack of collaboration with key stakeholders. There was a lot of back and forth email with drafts instead of a sit down brainstorming effort. Much of this was because the team was literally scattered around the world.
I learned a lot about the power of networking around the company to ensure I had the right subject matter experts. I worked with good writers and learned a lot from them as well.
I enjoyed all the people I met throughout the company and the contractors we worked with. The end-to-end view I gained of Nokia and the insight into the strategy and operations was like a mini-MBA course during the year I held this role.
Learning about the company from end-to-end and meeting great people.
Odd working hours - based on the event and the CEO's schedule.
Sales Director - Service Provider/Enterprise (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – October 24, 2017
Nokia is a global company with great benefits, stable employment and many chefs in the kitchen. Everyone is positive, working to make sales and generally willing to do what it takes. We're 102,000 employees strong...so be prepared to work with many layers of management.
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Singapore, US – October 15, 2017
Corporate culture that helps streamline and structure innovation, with well structured processes and resources in support of day-day activities. There is a clear divide between employees and management,
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – October 10, 2017
Great work and life balance. Poor Management and no opportunities to advance as even senior management is trying to hold onto to their positions so basically a cut-throat atmosphere with lots of jockeying for staying employed.
outage manager (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – October 7, 2017
Seems like most of these reviews are from "FORMER" employees. That says a lot about what's going on. Does anybody still work there?
Layoff are endless. The foreign guy with the lowest salary and least experience will be kept every time. The brains that do all the work and keep the customers happy are the ones that get cut. Young managers don't know how to manage. Upper managers are only looking to cover their own a**.
job security, long hours, no overtime, no raises, on call, outsourcing, no chance of advancement
TECHNICAL SUPPORT ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Lombard, IL – October 4, 2017
The threat of lay offs were always lingering. Raises were almost non-existent, but there were generally annual bonuses. Telecommuting was encouraged, which is a wonderful benefit. I've held onto my car for almost 19 years now because of how little I've had to use it. Worked with a great team, and wonderful manager. Would have retired there had they let me.
Account Logistics Manager (Former Employee) – stlouis mo – October 4, 2017
The upper management really do not grasp what the people in the front lines do , or how they do their jobs. fNokia managers are VERY much micro managers, they feel the need to watch their people at all times. For a technology company they are FAR from progressive
umm good benefits
the managers are a hinderence to job of front line workers
Former Alcatel-Lucent, poor job security, poor pay increases.
Senior Engineer, Wireless Technical Support (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – October 4, 2017
As Alcatel-Lucent layoffs constant. Other than that engineers were mostly self managed. Middle management functions such as scheduling on call, meeting with customers, internal status meeting, scheduling days off, and much more were handled by engineers. ALU was very flexible with work from home arrangements. Work culture was lacking since most ALU buildings were near empty. Have heard from current employees not much has changed for former ALU employees.
