    Pros

    Good work life balance, line management listens to downline viewpoint.
    Great opportunity to grow and learn.

    Cons

    Management too slow to react to market conditions.
    Too much round-robin musical chairs type scenario at upper leadership, no new blood and same mistakes were repeated.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for advise i'm afraid, they should have revamped the leadership instead of cutting downline staff who were experienced, skilled and full of energy to contribute to success.

    Pros

    Have worked for them since the Siemens days (28 yrs) and seen lots of merges and layoffs but they have made the right decisions at reducing the size, selling off divisions that would hold them back and removing people that aren't focused on improving the company and customer relations. Great people to work with; Innovative designs; Teamwork

    Cons

    Too many sub-contracted employees that don't have the same drive as badged employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and drive us to number one. Stay customer focused and reward performing employees.

    Pros

    Excellent management team and processes to work on a global basis.

    Cons

    Bad strategy as many key technology shifts left to the demise of the organization and eventual purchase by Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Forcing a market to take devices that are not consumer focused simply did not work and costs nearly the whole company their jobs. Listen to your team that directly get feedback from customers as this was a big issue for survival with this organization. I feel really bad for the finish people as they are fantastic folks and the leadership was forced to make some very tough decisions because of failure to recognize and react to key market shifts.

    Pros

    Highly technical. You could do anything you set your mind to. Pay was great, and bonuses were good when you got them. I loved the people I was working with, and it was a great culture. This was the best company I've ever worked at.

    Cons

    Company got too complacent. Management thought they could do nothing wrong. Iphone and Android beat Nokia to the punch.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. Phone division of Nokia is gone.
