I worked at Nokia full-time

Pros

Best company whose heart and vision were in the right direction. Flexible hours, open to ideas and genuinely concerned about customers.

Cons

Being on the West Coast of the US meant many days of 5:00 am calls to Finland. A mobile giant that doesn't understand the US market and refuses to let the US unit operate how it needs to. Too many levels of management. Slow to move on good ideas. Poor execution. New US management team has many gifted leaders but the marketing department is careless and out of touch with the company's brand situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Financially, it is probably too late to remain in the mobile phone business. If you insist though, get out of Finland. The union is killing you and you are out of touch with consumers. The US management team needs to be in Silicon Valley. Not in name only but physically working out of the office. It would have helped morale too.
