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

Pros

Good working atmosphere and environment, good colleague relationship, feel comfortable, typical European company, it's really a wonderful company, but all of above Pros are for the Nokia before 2009.

Cons

We have a Trojan CEO (former), and a terrible cooperative parter with slow motion, and a group of stupid management staff, and all of these ruin such a perfect company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Are you kidding me? What kind of advice for a dying company?

    I worked at Nokia full-time

    Pros

    There there are an amazing number of great people at Nokia. Those who have made it through the changes still go those extra steps to help where possible. Now that Microsoft deal is looming the impact to culture in Finland and other locations may change.

    Cons

    Slow to change, adapting to new ways is not easy for many and the measurements 3-4 times then again after some debate is common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about adopting the think smart, act fast to position Nokia for better success. FLEXIBLE is not bad.

    I worked at Nokia as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    9-5 hours, not expected to stay later or come earlier. Great perks. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Bad communication from upper leadership. Short-sighted strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better long term look. Don't scrap MeeGo after one phone. Don't think you're invincible.
