    Pros

    You will never get bore of doing repetitive work. Always on toes and challenges up for you. You actually feel that you are contributing to the success of the company.

    Cons

    Policies are not very friendly any more, budget constraints are killing the morale and lay-offs too. Forgetting the hard and best work put the employees for all these years and making Redknee The Redknee which has acquired big part of NSN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Policy should be employee friendly as we are moving away from that. All the hard and extra hours of work put by employee gets use to get compensated by providing the flexibility in working hours or whatever employee needs the most after he proven himself. Delaying and hardening of employee friendly practices and policies will have cascade effects not only on actual productivity but the edge which he use to deliver while highly motivated. I am hopeful situation is continuously monitored by high management before its too late.

    Pros

    You will be given the opportunity to go from design, development to operational support. You will be given the tools but you have to dig in deep yourself to solve problems and do them quickly. Immediate managers and team leads are great, will support you genuinely. Everyone around you is very busy, so if you have specific questions you'll get help. You will be recognized for the good work you do. Once you are accustomed to the team you have good flexibility in terms of work/life balance.

    Cons

    There used to be a major disconnect between the upper and Immediate managers, the middle management was chaotic, and have heard of many false promises. It seems to have gotten better over the last year but I'm still not confident about them. The ramp-up time is short and not everyone has the time to help, which is sometimes stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management seem to be doing better job over the past year so I would encourage to keep going in right direction.

    Pros

    Great people and lots of fun to work here. I loved the atmosphere and moving up the ranks very quickly. My first job out of school and it taught me a lot about what it took to get a product working.

    Cons

    Lots of turn-over, so there wasn't much in the way of stability. Random layoffs were a big problem that I would've like to not see happen so often. The monthly company meeting was a bit of a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the fact that my shares are worth something after all these years! Great job.
