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

Pros

The salary and benefits are equal to local market trends and in some cases better than local market trends.

Cons

I have worked more and lived less over the last several years. While this was mostly driven by the need and desire to increase the US Market; it soon became the need to contribute to Nokia's survivability in the European market. The strategical decisions made by Leadership have been driven by the European Market and Nokia European culture. This has negatively impacted Nokia for years due to the paradigm shift in smart phone technology coming out of the US mostly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Nokia Way is something that should be examined and completely rebuilt. The CIO refers to the Nokia Way as the Right Way, which has been attached to "with the Right People" on occasion. If you consider their Global presence, Market Trends, and current smart phone retail pricing; you might say the Nokia Way is perhaps an unfortunate wrong turn. Was it a wrong turn that lead down a very narrow trail with no outlet or recourse? Will it lead to the ultimate abyss? The outcome is just on the horizon. The smart phone technology has been bubbling out of Silicon Valley for many years now. While Nokia has an office located in this technology hub, the Leadership stands firm with their strategy which has dropped all their hopes and dreams into one platform. This platform was based on a single partnership that now appears to be a very one sided relationship. This continues to be the Nokia Way....the Right Way... with the Right People.

    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.
