    I worked at Nokia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great culture, employees have freedom to express their opinions without being afraid of getting whipped by the management, this in turn creates loyalty and innovation. - Work life balance is awesome, work from home or anywhere, the result that counts. - Beautiful office building, with amenities like professional espresso machine, napping pods, game rooms, onsite sauna, bath & gym (certain locations) etc. -... The company is very generous to its employees, even in time of difficulty (i.e. losing revenues/profits to Apple during 2008 - 2012 period.) They do really care about their employees.

    Cons

    - The only downside I could think of was the decision to partner with Microsoft, which led to the fall of Nokia, allowing Apple to eat the big pie of the smartphone business.
