It has always had a moral and ethical spirit, ensuring not only that it worked towards its financial objectives it maintained a desire to achieve environmental and corporate 'citizen' responsibilities.

Nokia Employee

"HR policies are generous. However, the company faces many struggles to remain relevant in the industry. The announced acquisition of Nokia's mobile phones divisions has had an impact on morale (poorly) and the company's financials aren't doing so well.The major problem, is that Nokia's management teams are ineffective. They are wishy washy, and refuse to actually manage poor performers beyond the annual review process."
