    Pros

    There was real development going on and not just maintenance of already developed software. Good place to start for a junior developer.

    Cons

    As an external contractor there was no possibility to enter as staff and to improve.

    Pros

    Nokia was the best company I worked for - in terms of its excellent people, open and collaborative culture, relative absence of corporate politics and, in its day, opportunities for growth and personal development.

    Cons

    Sadly, that is now largely history. It all started to end around 2010 and since then it has been a sad downwards roller-coaster ride. Management were far too late to recognise the threat from iOS and Android and did not invest enough on alternatives to Symbian. Then Elop came along and delivered his Burning Platform speech. The rest is by now an MBA case study in how not to combine the Osborne effect with the Ratner effect. There have been 3 or 4 major down sizings in as many years and very many good people have now left. Morale has been deteriorated with each restructure and few - even amongst senior management - still believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. And the culture - once Nokia's great strength - is becoming ever more American, ever more political.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly, a break up is now looking like the best option to maximize value.
