    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong global experience and brand recognition for the parent companies. The company started with very smart people but because of the issues, many of them left.

    Cons

    Difficult to get your job done, as everything had to go to Finland for approval. Promotions were based on internal politics and not results.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of smart people, you should listen to them.
