No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Fair compensation, and they really put their money where their mouth is regarding values.
Supportive of social activities initiated by site members including a community garden and subsidized offsite events. Great perks including latest phones.

Cons

Glass ceiling for North Americans. Also just too big so it not only moved too slowly to keep up, but constant re-organizations killed momentum yearly which resulted in massive amounts of wasted energy.

Advice to Management

You gave it your best shot but we all know what happened, I think listening to the companies you acquired would have slowed the fall.

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good interaction between employees and management. Open and relaxed atmosphere, anyones ideas counts, you can grab opportunities and build your own success.
    I saw surprisingly little office politics for a company of it's size.
    Good compensation and benefits, good personal growth opportunities. Initiative is rewarded.

    Cons

    I was there when the business collapsed. One drawback of a large company is the inertia, but with a renewed focus and much smaller scale, especially when Mobile Device business is transferred to Microsoft, innovation can hopefully happen again.
