    Pros

    When Nokia went well, working there was really exciting. You could do things, you were listened to and the ratio "despicable person"/employee was very low. Nowadays things have gone so bad that there is a serious opportunity to be part of a great turnaround ... provided you can make it happen. The trouble is that the "despicable person"/employee ratio as rocketed following the redundancies and it has not come down back to normal levels yet.

    Cons

    Still too many senior managers who mistake illusion for vision and think it makes them look smart. Some of them have paid the price for it, but not all of them. I also think that the focus of maps & navigation is misplaced, not to mention the fact that the offering does not measure up to the main competitor in fundamental areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carry on chasing the bullshitters out of the company, take an honest look at your products and improve them accordingly

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
