Stephen Elop: There will be 'substantial reductions in employment' inside Nokia

Stephen Elop and Steve Ballmer are in the middle of a Q&A now. When Elop was asked by a concerned Finnish reporter, "What happens to Finland," Stephen responded that a successful Nokia is good for Finland but there will be "substantial reductions in employment" in Finland and around the world. We can't even imagine what it's like to be working inside of Nokia at the moment but the stress, frustration, and concern must be extraordinarily high.
