  1. Nokia was a good company to work for. For a large company, they provided a great day-to-day working environment.

    Pros

    They attracted very capable and creative people.

    Cons

    There was a large divide between the customer facing work force and upper management. This made the company direction disconnected from the market place which caused their demise.

    Advice to Management

    Go to school on some of the new, successful technology companies. Get out of the ivory tower and out on the street where you can get more in touch with your customers.

  2. Interesting work, badly mismanaged from the top

    Pros

    Qt is really cool - the most complete cross-platform framework, and the best maintained. I have always enjoyed working with it and was glad for a chance to work on it directly. Fortunately the Digia acquisition may allow us to return to that kind of work, so do not take anything negative I have written as any kind of indication for the future of that; the outlook seems bright for Qt now, just not for Nokia (and I seem to be reviewing Nokia here).

    Cons

    Nokia provided a series of mobile platform projects which distracted us from working on Qt itself, and the company's right hand doesn't know what the left is doing so there were destabilizing changes on a couple of occasions, ending with the cancellation of a project after this entire office had wasted more than a year on it.

    Advice to Management

    There's no hope for management, they don't have a working vision at all. They need to be replaced, but it may be too late for that too.

  3. Hang on, its a wild ride
