Former Employee - Head of Technology Marketing in London, England (UK)

I worked at Nokia full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Individuals given a lot of liberty to perform. Easy to move around in the world if that interested you.

Cons

Company became bureaucratic and shunned innovation rather than embraces it, "good enough" culture rather than innovation & excellence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Obviously the Windows Phone strategy is not working but as with the leaders of the euro-zone, commitment to maintain course strengthens while the downward slide continues.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay, good structured career support, training and development.

    Cons

    Can suffer from the slower pace of change / workplace innovation you'd expect of a big corporation. And conflict between competing business units can be disruptive to getting the best job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up the cautious corporate culture - you'll get more people loving, as opposed to just liking, their jobs and working more collaboratively, innovatively and effectively for it.

    Big machine syndrome. You are another number.
    Slow to implement changes
    Upper management sometimes do not know whats happening 'on the floor'
    With recent redundancies, felt like people who were kept were because they were buddies not because they were the best person for the role

    Keep your pulse on the feelings of the workforce.
