    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).

    Good potential for growth if they can survive their current situation
    Strong presence outside of North America
    Fairly generous benefits - especially vacation and sick leave.

    Cons

    Company in the process of downsizing has put growth on hold
    Sometimes feels that no one is steering the ship
    Sometimes multiple people driving the same issue with no clear responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to create synergy among the different interdependent teams which seems to be of want lately
    Please define a clear chain of responsibility
