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

Pros

Fair compensation, and they really put their money where their mouth is regarding values.
Supportive of social activities initiated by site members including a community garden and subsidized offsite events. Great perks including latest phones.

Cons

Glass ceiling for North Americans. Also just too big so it not only moved too slowly to keep up, but constant re-organizations killed momentum yearly which resulted in massive amounts of wasted energy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You gave it your best shot but we all know what happened, I think listening to the companies you acquired would have slowed the fall.

    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?
