    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Lovely colleagues.
    * A great sense of community.
    * Some green credentials.
    * Honesty in its dealings with other companies.
    * Genuinely good engineering in its products.

    You were never alone with a challenge: there was always someone that could be asked for an opinion and people would nearly always make the time to help. Probably the second-best thing I'm taking away from my time there it's that willingness to help and be helped; "The Nokia Way".

    Cons

    Almost zero opportunity for mobility within the organisation or to renew skills.
    Little/no training available - certainly nothing beyond Nokia-specific techniques and tools.
    Regular requests to work extra/unsocial hours for no remuneration.
    A culture of requiring high achievers to fight hard for recognition.

    Some of these are due to the very tight budgets of the last 7 years and, as such, are quite understandable but there comes a point when giving your best in the hope of "jam tomorrow" becomes stale.

    Advice to Management

    In aviation two of the best survival rules are: (1) there are times when leaving the controls alone is the best way to regain control and (2) avoiding bad weather may ruin your journey but it won't end your life.

    I think they apply to Nokia quite well.
