    Pros

    I resonate with the corporate slogan of "We create the technology to connect the world". The company today is a combination of many, many different corporate cultures and is making conscious effort to merge them and create a new culture going forward.

    Cons

    For many, 2017 is an unfortunate year as it is a year of reductions after the merger with Alcatel-Lucent. There are still opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the efforts to create a new Nokia culture.
