Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good Work-Life Balance. Great people and company treats them well. Some interesting projects. Great global company, that cares about people and the environment (manufactures phones cleaning as possible).

Cons

Large company, so things take time to get done. The past two years (and the next) wil have lots of reorganizations, with reduction in staff, to save costs and stream line projects.

Advice to Management

Keep the moral up. When you reorg with reductions - continue the practice of caring for your employees, like you are currently doing (assistance with job search, fair packages, enough notice for families to adjust). We understand the business need to streamline.

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart and brilliant employees, Great vision on technology with middle management, good work life balance, flexible hours at work, great benefits overall.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, no engagement from them for career progression, no discussions about career progression at all. This caused high attrition rate as soon as the job market got a little bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal employees and award them for the work done. Take suggestions from employees that have been in the industry long enough to give advice on future trends and factor that into strategy decisions (short term and long term).
