    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bleeding-edge tech
    A lot of different options for projects to be a part of
    Intelligent developers with good ideas
    Relaxed work place
    Excellent facility (Chicago) complete with foosball, pool, ping pong, and gym
    Recognizable brand name

    Cons

    A lot of "shooting from the hip" going on - managers demanding features that are "a good idea" but are never used
    Feedback is often sub-par on projects and progress
    A TON of bureaucracy surrounding EVERYTHING
    "Agile Work Group" forcing practices upon everyone and everything
    A lot of time wasted in doing "Agile things" for the sake of being "Agile"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well known company. Helps with vendor meetings and the prospect of a larger account creates interest for companies who want to do business with our group.

    Cons

    Leadership has no central focus. Good ideas from within are rarely embraced. A certain arrogance from headquarters believes that Nokia will tell the market what it wants, not the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time attending internal powerpoint presentations, more time with customers and what the competition is doing.
