Former Employee - Engineering Manager

Pros

Great team feelings. Lots of competent people. Great leadership. Management willing to listen and take comments onboard.

Cons

Hard to get promoted above a certain range. Certain roles have a limited job grade level meaning you have to move to a new and different role to get promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is perhaps not really relevent now what Nokia has taken over Symbian: Ensure salaries are in line with the industry.

Recommends

    Pros

    There was a real focus on the software, and keeping the engineers happy. More so than I have ever seen at any other company.

    Cons

    Under resourced. Our internal and external customers asked for a lot - there was always too much to do, and not enough time to do it in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a fine job. We had a vision of the way forward, and apart from minor issues along the way, we tended to execute that vision.
