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 have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Focus on work/life balance, telecommuting, 401k plan, positive work culture up until summer 2012 lay-offs

    Cons

    Even new hires can get laid off, which makes the environment really stressful. Constant reorganizations and not enough people to do the work. Also a lot of planinng and talking vs. execution....too slow. People do not come to the office a lot, so the buzz is not there.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a priority to execute well - pick a few products to focus on and go to market fast!
