Sales Solution Manager (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GADecember 14, 2018
Even the company es very flexible with the time, and provides a good benefits package, the leadership in most of the line managers is poor and Nokia always is under reorganizations without taking in consideration the skills of their people, so that doesn't allow you to grow in your career unless you jump to another company.
Pros
flexible schedules
Cons
poor leadership

Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CADecember 12, 2018
The local manager misleads and then uses you as a fall guy
No tools to do the job, no proper training and management does not support you in any way. This is a hostile work environment.
Pros
Free Lunch on Monday and Wednesday
Cons
Management throws you under the buss

No future in the US
Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHDecember 6, 2018
It isn't your father's or grandfather's AT&T anymore.

The evolution to Nokia was difficult, with job cuts common in telecom. Employees get that.

What we object to is being treated as an annoyance by an employer who is only tolerating you until they can replace you in Eastern Europe or Asia. The deception about the coming job cuts is total until you are notified.

You won't get common respect here.

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDDecember 2, 2018
I worked for Nokia, previously Lucent Technologies for the past twenty years and I enjoyed every minute of my time. For the past eight to ten years, I was allowed to work from home. All my supervisors were great managers. I can recommend them to anyone. The work environment is very conducive. It is culture that encourages team work and reward everyone for their hard work.

Toxic work environmnt
ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  NJNovember 29, 2018
When this was fALU it was a much better corporate culture but since Nokia took over it has gotten to be toxic. There is no substance, just pretty slide decks and presentations. Most of the fALU employees are getting pushed out or are running for the hills. The culture here is not one of teamwork but rather it seems like the more you kiss up to upper management the better you are protected from the rolling layoffs. There are still a few good people here, but this company is not heading in the right direction at all. I cant wait to get my severance package to be OUT!!!

Great flexibile environment and healthcare benefit
DSP Software Development Engineer (Current Employee) –  Murray Hill, NJNovember 19, 2018
The flexible environment and the ability to work remotely are the main benefits. The work is challenging and there are lots of good people that work there. Due to "business conditions" raises and bonuses aren't consistent.
Pros
Working remotely, flexible hours.
Cons
no/low raises. Inconsistent bonuses

Avoid like the plague.
Project Manager – NYCT VHF Radio Project (Former Employee) –  Murray Hill, NJNovember 18, 2018
This company has no direction. Rajeev Suri just lost VZW as a customer as he continues to perpetuate the elitist corporate mentality at Nokia. Rolling layoffs every month continue - there is no future at this company as it currently stands. They are going toward a consultant only model 30/70 because they have the idea everyone is a commodity.

A disparate bureaucracy
DEVOPS ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 15, 2018
The company is definitely caught between needing to evolve and having a culture set in the old times of companies. With such a massive company, it will come with hurdles. Trying to find the way to split the gap to make this happen is a major challenge with this company.
Pros
Had a beer fridge
Cons
A bit lonely in an office
