Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Nokia full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work Flexibility Strong Portfolio of products and services Very good training programs for employees Good potential for growth if they can survive their current situation Strong presence outside of North America Fairly generous benefits - especially vacation and sick leave.

Cons

Company in the process of downsizing has put growth on hold Sometimes feels that no one is steering the ship Sometimes multiple people driving the same issue with no clear responsibilities.

Advice to Management

Please try to create synergy among the different interdependent teams which seems to be of want lately Please define a clear chain of responsibility

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart and brilliant employees, Great vision on technology with middle management, good work life balance, flexible hours at work, great benefits overall.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, no engagement from them for career progression, no discussions about career progression at all. This caused high attrition rate as soon as the job market got a little bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal employees and award them for the work done. Take suggestions from employees that have been in the industry long enough to give advice on future trends and factor that into strategy decisions (short term and long term).


  2. Too slow to change and losing talent fast

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Focus on work/life balance, telecommuting, 401k plan, positive work culture up until summer 2012 lay-offs

    Cons

    Even new hires can get laid off, which makes the environment really stressful. Constant reorganizations and not enough people to do the work. Also a lot of planinng and talking vs. execution....too slow. People do not come to the office a lot, so the buzz is not there.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a priority to execute well - pick a few products to focus on and go to market fast!
