Out with the old and in with the new

Project Coordinator (Current Employee) Fargo, ND

ProsThere is a very open work enviroment. Ideas can be shared openly with management and oversight.

Very flexible hours.

Casual dress.

ConsManagement doesnt manage. Most managers have no managerial qualifications and have no clue of management concepts and are very removed from day-to-day activities.

The promotions and raises are catered to those who are willing to agree with managers at the cost of the teams success.

Formerly known as Navteq, Nokia L&C went through a re-org that promoted employees based on tenure. This unfortunately meant that even if you were responsible for important project activities and were on your way for promotion, that was squashed. Since the reorganization, people who have been with the company for the longest are making way more money and still have little to no resposibilities, well others with shorter tenure but with tremendously more responsibility and experience are making exceptionally less.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet different managers in the Advanced Production Facility in Fargo. Normally I would advise to "train your managers," but these managers are untrainable. Also, devise a fair and value based approach for raises and promotions that will replace the brown-nosing based approach and supplement the what-have-you-done-lately approach.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
