    I worked at Nokia (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When they eventually lay you off, there may be a nice package

    Cons

    One of the worst valley experiences I have had. Do not work here unless you are Finnish. Even then, be careful. This the company that keeps building and throwing away. Technology, market leadership and even people.

    Advice to Management

    Give up. You have no clue.
