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 a year)

    Pros

    Compensation & Benefits.

    Training & Development.

    Developing more hardware, albeit late to market.

    Cons

    Unrealistic leadership expectations, ignorance of the market, especially in core functions e.g. leadership, marketing and finance.

    Highly political culture, predominantly one of management by fear. Still needs a good clear out of the arrogant and clueless old-guard leaders - some of whom seem to be un-flushable despite failures.

    Unhealthy culture of OS partner distain and inability to drive its' own future.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and act upon the market.

    Clear-out the political senior MLT members - hold failures to account, and reward successes fairly.
