    Global Disconnect, Broken Systems, Poor Leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsFriendly people to work with
    Great place to work if you want to come to the US from another company - they give away green cards like they were sales flyers
    Great salaries

    ConsTerrible equipment (old laptops are recycled even when they are out of warranty with little or no IT Support)
    Terrible leadership - completely dysfunctional leadership teams
    Constant Lay-Offs

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo the executives - Be honest with yourself and look around. Stop making promises to employees that you can't keep. Quit being such wimps and stand up to "global". Quit spending so much time money and effort on people that only do excel and powerpoint presentations for a living and actually know how to manage people!

    Employer of Choice-long way to go

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat benefits. Good people and lots of time off.

    ConsPromotions are not handled fairly and generally end up hiring outside for key management positions

    Advice to Senior ManagementWant to be the best place to work winner? Promote within. Especially when there is a so called hiring freeze, salary freeze and promotions freeze, that is for everyone except friends being brought in from Nortel.

    NSN, The emotional appeal.

    Learning Solutions Consultant (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe opportunity to work for a global company and in particular as a former Nokia employee, an opportunity to be part of start up with 60,000 employees from day one.

    ConsPost jv, restructure and extreme competition placed management in a tough position where they had to reduce operating costs drastically to compete. This movement and lack of real comunication of company vision affected team performance and overall moral. At this point the biggest issue is lack of trust between employees and management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice is an actual focus on employees emotional welfare. Without an emotional comittment from the employees, NSN is doomed to fail as a result of brain drain which is currently in progress in North America.
    The concept of The Spider and the Starfish is an example NSN should learn. You do not become more strategic by centralizing as in the case of the Spider. Empower your employees and TRUST them, openly communicate the vision and values and give regions more autonomy. A starfish cut in five places becomes 5 individual starfish with the same inate objective. This is the only way NSN can effectively compete in all regions.
