    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Most team members and colleagues are good people trying hard to delivery outcomes. Variety of work since you need to cover a lot of gaps. Pays a wage.

    Cons

    Poor executive management. Global 'experts' and APAC management are mostly below average time wasters. Probably the most political company I have ever worked for. Slow to make and implement changes required to grow the business. Some people working massive hours while some doing hardly anything, again poor management unable to see issues and address.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out anyone who has been there over 10years, get some fresh blood and let's them drive new ideas and innovation around product positioning, services and delivery.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Nokia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance - work pressure doesn't eat into your family time. Vacation - Never had a case was it was rejected - Of course you should do due diligence and apply responsibly

    Cons

    Many take undue advantage of flexibility. In turn, it impacts company performance and time-to-market for most of the products are very high.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a watch on (Line) Managers - many of them just come and go without adding any value. Their team also slowly aligns to Manager's way of working and eventually company suffers.

    While employees respect cost cutting measures in the aggressive & competitive business scenario, unnecessary and meaningless F&C need to be reviewed and curtailed!

    I have been working at Nokia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pro - Good salary and benefits

    Cons

    Con - Achieving their headcount reductions goals after the Alcatel Lucent acquisition by forcing virtual office employees to relocate or self terminate without regard to skills or experience. Sends the message people are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Nokia's in a business that promotes networking and the ability to be connected anywhere yet you believe employees need to be tethered to an office.

    International culture, team spirit and collaboration, opportunity to travel for internal purposes as well as trade shows and customer meetings. Very successful and mostly efficient management, but lots of control from mother ship
