Great Software Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Symbian

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

ConsUnder 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 Senior ManagementOverall 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pros: The compensation is at least comparable with similar London-based companies, at least in Information Systems. ~This may be due to the presence of city-based companies… Cons: IS management are definitely not people-oriented, and seem to make a habit of putting their foot in their mouth every time they try to make… Advice to Senior Management: Please try to get managers with properly developed people skills.… More
