Pros

Nokia is profitable and has large cash reserves. I found it a fantastic place to work and learn. The scale of the operation is phenomenal - especially the software organisation. I had no problem building a long career at Nokia. The benefits are very good - particularly compared to other US companies.

Cons

Working for a US operation headquartered in Finland can be tough when corporate decisions seem to be too far removed from the reality of your local market. Being large, this ship can be slow to turn - patience, persuasion and often travel to Finland are required to initiate important changes.

Advice to Management

Smoke the competition - Nokia is stronger than the rest!

  1. Not a bad place to work at all, just somewhat conservative and slow to adapt to change

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Sound and conservative management - Pleasant place to work, people tend to be very friendly - Benefits and vacation time are generous - Get to work with a large company with global prestige - Rich company can afford paying for little things here in there (like HD video conferencing) that are sound and helpful but not extravagant

    Cons

    - Management might be too slow to innovate and adapt to change - Tough to get promotions without moving to Europe or another country - Lots of red tape involved in getting anything done, needs to have more entrepreneurial attitude

    Advice to Management

    Continue with sound and conservative management. You can't rest on your laurels forever, so it may help to be less arrogant and more adaptive to change. Competition is very fierce and some more American style innovative spirit might do some good.
