Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Reasonably sound benefits, reasonably good company web site, a great deal of training opportunities online.

Cons

Recycled management situation. They announced 17,000 person lay-off last November but management was just recycled. Things can't be that bad financially with no one to blame in upper management.

Advice to Management

Pin-point the company's issues and focus on correcting those issues. If the management in that area is lacking, maybe it's time to bring in someone from the outside with some new ideas.

    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
