    I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Up until about a year ago it was a very good company to progress career wise and offered the possibility to move into different areas of work (logistics, sales) and so learn more about the complete picture of phone manufacturing.
    Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Company is in transition and the change seems to be too slow and lack clear direction.
    Still too much work is done in silos with conflict of interest between departments.
    Nokia HR Spain (at least) shows no respect towards employees being laid off and it has a negative effect on current employees' motivation. Really makes you question if the Nokia values still exist.

    Advice to Management

    Accelarate the transition before it is too late.
    Really revise how HR treats employees to avoid loosing so many good people to the competition.

    Cons

    Cost Controls
    Outsourcing
    Authority of customer facing people

    Advice to Management

    Cost control should be more and non business generating management layer should be reduced. There should be more focus on customer relationship on all levels.
