    Good Work Culture - Nice Exposure towards industry practices

    Pros

    I think they are doing better fiscally speaking since they unloaded their phone group to Microsoft.

    Cons

    Finland management got left in the dust when Apple came into mobile phone business; they can be too insulated from global trends from their vantage. Good people though!

    Pros

    High investment in R&D. Great place for scientists and engineers that want to patent their technology.

    Cons

    Software is just not a part of the company's DNA. Terrible place for scientists and engineers that do not want to patent their ideas.

    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A true European Company, working for Nokia was an honor. WHen I started, Nokia was on top of the mobile world and doing the hard work of competing with Apple on their turf. We had a lot of fun and worked hard.

    Cons

    Management could never catch up. The Finnish style of management was too bloated and slow.

    Advice to Management

    More individual decisions, less committees.

    Great benefits, especially 401k match and bonuses. Nokia is also very good about supporting continuing education.

    A lot of the employees were on the older side, making it less fun for younger employees.
