    Pros

    Very attractive benefits such as 401K matching, profit sharing.

    Cons

    The senior management does not create a trust worthy environment. The employees would always have to look over their shoulders. Many of them need to be reminded of the "employee relation" part of the managerial position.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage the employees. They are more than capable of delivering their end of the deal. Managing employees effectively is more than just tell them what to do. There is a whole list of qualifications.

  10. A great company for those who don't like to think or do

    Pros

    work life balance is usually great, good work environment. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    confusing, frustrating, irritating management decisions. No real structure to anything that is being done. Lack of communication between groups will be the downfall of the this company. Vision for the future is too nokia specific don't know how to create a clear vision and be aware of where the real competition is hiding. Every single engineer will become extremely frustrated at some point at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what is already out there in terms of ip/cloud transformation than look at your own transformation and see your misalignment, you will not create the future with your vision, but you must learn to exist in it.
