Pros

Nokia is clearly the market leader globally in mobile communications. Its move to transform into a services company is managemenst anticipation of the market. In many markets around the world it is the No 1 brand and market leader.

Cons

Nokia is sometimes slow to respond to competitors, but when it does it quickly overtakes them. In the North American market where the mobile operators control the value chain and technology is fragmented, Nokia is not as strong as it is in other markets. A lot of the management positions are held by Finns or are based in Helsinki which limits career opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nokia need to put more attention to the upcoming USA competitor offerings from Apple, Google, Rimm

    Pros

    Really intelligent and knowledgeable people, amazing focus on strategy, challenging work, and an open environment for wild and passionate ideas. Surprisingly for an organization that is so huge, it is very agile and always changing. You are never bored. There is also a very significant mac community that has their own forum and mailing list to chat about aspects of Apple support, tips and tricks.

    Cons

    You can feel like a tiny speck in an ocean at times. It can be frustrating when you realize some processes are in place for the sake of process and measurement and not for optimal or quick outcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a test or other metrics to show where bottlenecks are in the organization.

    Pros

    The Work-Life balance at Nokia is the greatest draw. They understand the correlation between work and life; how a well balanced life with family and friends promotes and replenishes one to be ready to work each day. I never felt overworked, yet a lot was accomplished.

    Cons

    Nokia is a well oiled machine running at an incredible pace. It is very difficult to make significant changes in the engineering design and business model. Worker input seems ineffectual most of the time. Compensation is slightly below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people at the bottom, they're ones implementing all of your ideas and know best whether or not one thing is feasible versus another.
