    I worked at Nokia Networks

    Pros

    International presence helps diversify the business.
    Still good brand name in Nokia.
    Very good people at working levels

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction.
    Product quality and content lags competition.
    Short term focus.
    Wasted opportunities.
    No carrot, only sticks.
    Missing a strong, charismatic leadership team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the leadership teams. Remove the posers, the disconnected, the despots, and the excessive arrogant.
    Truly believe, recognize, and respect the value of the working teams.
    Avoid forcing too many global efficiency actions especially when they are half-baked.
    Celebrate something, anything.
    Review HR practices and objectives as they are getting more disconnected from the reality of the industry and the company culture/environment. Performance reviews based on Rank & Yank should be reconsidered. Stop following others and lead the way.

    Current Employee - Project Manager

    I have been working at Nokia Networks

    Pros

    Can be a good place to gain some experience. Compensation and benefits can be better than the competition in mature markets.

    Cons

    Organization is biased in favor of young white, northern European males, particularly those from Finland and to a lessor degree from Germany. Job requirements as well as performance measures are not applied to this group.

    Likewise product development is very Euro-centric, presenting problems for implementation elsewhere.

    There is almost no real skill in services management. Project and program management are extremely immature.

    Few standard objective measures set by management.

    There has been a criminal investigation of corruption and wrong doing in the ex-Siemens operations. There continue to be struggles with anti-corruption and ethics.

    It is a company of administrators, not leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start pushing down authority to an appropriate level and hold managers accountable for financial performance, within ethical constraints.
