I have been working at Nokia full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Particularly nice benefit program. Impressive vacation time potential for those who have put in the years. Great people who desperately desire to see this company return as the market leader. Come on NOK stock!

Cons

Room for advancement and individual innovation. However, once you hit a particular career level, it becomes necessary to either manage a group or move to Finland. Concerned that not everything is being done to reach the America's market, but I know it can't happen in one year or even a few years.

    I worked at Nokia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people
    Lots of talent
    Not a backstabbing environment

    Cons

    - Too many reorgs
    - Sometimes have folks of questionable talent or who lack motivation and work ethic in Sr. roles
    Waste an awful lot of money on European managers brought stateside -- the comp and benefits are ridiculous for some of these people...and the company is not one with a lot of extra cash right now
    - Too slow in execution
    - Opportunities for advancement are limited right now
    - Lots of layoffs due to market position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a place to hang out the economy downturn. This is a place you can hide for a while.

    Cons

    Re-org, re-org and re-org. I have 6 managers within 2 years due to re-org. It was turned from bad to worse after I was regroup to a incapable group with full of jokers. Management only likes yes man even blind know what was wrong in the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First line managers should be eliminated all together. They did not manage people nor project. All they do is just relay their managers request to people who report to them at the very last minute.

    Then these managers blame their people for failing the project.
