I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Once a real power house but the world has changed and it has been left in the dust.

Cons

OK tech is cyclical but you do expect a company that once had respect as a core value would treat people accordingly. No longer. Although I left a long time ago it saddens me to hear all the stories of HR breaking agreements with employees and suggesting a legal avenue to resolve them, of people who relocated thousands of miles for the company being told to leave at very short notice (less than a month) with impacts on family and other examples of borderline behavior. Why would you join a company that treats people like this?

Advice to Management

If you have been with the company more than 5 years in senior management then you should be ashamed of yourselves
