    Pros

    The values of the finish company are exceptional. Collaborative environment within a global company.

    Cons

    In the past at the mobile phones piece, decisions were too Finland centric, depending on global approvals what delayed certain decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralize decisions in order to make those faster.

    Sometimes Management can appear out of touch as is the case in many large software organizations.

    As much as possible, allow decisions on product direction come from those that develop the product rather than from above.

    Pros

    Amazing and talented colleagues, great work environment, very good perks and flexibility to take PTO when needed.

    Cons

    Senior management totally lost. Lots of bureaucracy and heavy processes even for simple tasks. It's frustrating to see so many good and innovative engineering projects being killed because so many wrong decisions from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that Nokia is no more (Microsoft swallowed it) there's not much to be done. Would have been way wiser to go Android instead of putting all the apples on Microsoft's basket.
