      Pros

      Vertu promotes an entrepreneurial atmosphere, where employees are empowered to bring a good idea to life, as long as they can prove it makes good business sense and can put the hard work behind it. It is a company with global outreach yet it is small enough for one to meet and know every key player, which promotes a good team building environment and helps to promote initiatives and projects with all stakeholders. Vertu has demonstrated to be an innovative company, not only in the way they have created products but also in its marketing and brand management.

      Cons

      For the past four to five years, especially after the company was sold from Nokia to EQT, there has been a lot of changes in top management. This has created continuous changes on the whole structure of the company and also changes on the strategic direction of the company. Recently the company was sold from EQT to a Chinese group which has brought again changes in top management which promises more structural and strategic changes in the company.

      Pros

      Pleasant working environment and great people. Small company feel, with decent salary and benefits. Interesting products. I have enjoyed working here and hope that the company prospers in the future.

      Cons

      Recent years have seen a number of rounds of redundancies and lots of management changes, leading to quite an unstable working environment. The management do not seem to have a clear idea of what they want from the company, leading to various costly changes in direction. Too many managers have a input to decisions so sometimes there seems to be a paralysis in decision making. This has got worse by stages since the company was sold by Nokia and then by EQT.

      Pros

      All business departments in one building makes for a very friendly, family atmosphere. Working within the mobile phone industry means that projects and challenging and fast-paced, but you get exposed to some very interesting technology. Management are generally approachable and the company is rather good at communicating important information to all it's staff. Other benefits include a great on-site canteen and (relatively) flexible working hours.

      Cons

      Going through some changes at the moment and it has lost it's direction. A little guilty at making the same mistakes over again due to some teams not trusting each other enough. Not a great deal of social-life goes on after hours - most people drive into work and all go their separate ways after work.
