A sinking ship....

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Symbian

ProsA very diverse environment with a number of lovely, bright people. The industry is certainly very interesting and the opportunity to work with some truly brilliant industry developers was great.

ConsPossibly the most dysfunctional work environment I have ever been in. There were intense amounts of gossip and insecurity and generally speaking there was less focus on quality product than there was on personal issues and ego.

Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness decisions made to placate emotionally unstable middle managers or feed someones ego despite the full awareness that is is a bad business decision compared to other options available is foolhardy beyond the telling of it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
