Company in the process of downsizing has put growth on hold

    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).


  2. "Great culture, poor follow-through"

    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great workplace with descent perks. Nice people, very little office politics. Interesting work. Middle management is supportive of their reports.

    Cons

    The company is in difficult financial times, and successful projects are often cut, while the company bets bit on poor projects. If you don't mind working on cool stuff that will never make it out the door this is fine; but if you want to ship products, expect them to get cancelled at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on company culture. Stop killing good technology for bad business reasons.
