    Pros

    This company is a great place to start your working life as an engineer or scientist

    Cons

    This technology company suffers from the classical "Profit Maximization Trap" where employees are secondary to decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Center the strategies around people and top line before going to cost cuts. Don't kill the "golden eggs goose."

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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to advance your career, but not in the US

    Cons

    Nokia was not very good at talent management - particularly when they took over Alcatel-Lucent. Nokia is still downsizing in the US, which is not a surprise, but they are not smart about transitioning expertise while doing it. They do not value subject matter expertise, and this will hurt in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Before laying people off, understand their contribution to the company and make plans for transitions accordingly. Quit being so arrogant as to believe that expertise that has taken years to cultivate already exists or can be learned in 4 weeks.
