    I worked at Nokia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    By U.S. standards they offer a great vacation package. I believe employees start out with 22 annual vacation days.

    Cons

    Nokia seems to structure their rewards compensation so that the only way to get a significant raise is to change teams or roles, leaving only inflation based raises for the rest. This leads to constant moving within and in/out of the company making it hard to maintain and garner any kind of product expertise.

    Too many managers, often saying different things, hard to know which one is accurate.

    Communication between development sites needs improvement.

    Too many emails from the CEO trying to encourage hard work and good performance by guilting you into thinking you owe it to the shareholders to get them high returns.

    Too many promises about how they are going to improve things but the proceed to change their minds when it actually comes time to cash the check.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying things like product sales are improving and the products are well received and then bailing on any kind of morale improvement or compensation increase for employees. Pick either one or the other. The two together are contradictory.

    Pros

    Good people and good work-life balance in places.

    Cons

    Recent forced movement of employees has been carried out with little regard to reality. This applies to organizations as well as locations. Nokia, you can't force-fit experienced people into a foreign model without taking into account the realities of their lives.

    Advice to Management

    My bet is that your recent changes will send us packing.

    Pros

    you may learn something if you put a lot of effort

    Cons

    knowledge sharing is least; dependence on one person made the whole team dumb.

    Advice to Management

    Nokia has given ALU a wake-up call; ALU was running in old-school fashion; ALU didn't do anything when NOKIA laid off good and successful employees; Nokia will pay the price.
