Nokia dials Budapest, hangs up on Vienna

Is this part of the cost-cutting switch over to CEE people have been warning about, for what seems like years now? Nokia says it’s going to be closing its Vienna-based headquarters for Central Europe and moving 60 jobs to Budapest. Those willing to follow the jobs two hours down the M1 are allegedly welcome to do so, but would they really be the same jobs (i.e. at the same salaries)? Wonder who’s looking for the office space for Nokai…

It doesn’t mean the company’s workforce at its factory in Savar can breathe easier, though, as half of the plant’s workforce are being given pink slips.
