Very focused on costs all while deploying advanced technologies.

Line Managers are mostly good that try to push you to allow you to grow.


Lots of flexibility, but if you are in a regional or a global role expect to work late hours every now and again to fit in with Europe/ US calls.
Pros
Great non-cash benefits like income protection insurance, life insurance (attached to super)
Cons
Personal Development is lacking unless you have a defined career path or you have a great mentor.

Productive and fun place to work, the management is very supportive and the company work ethics and culture is also very good. A lot of team building activities are a good perk

Overall a good place to work, though there is a philosophy that more and more of the support functions should be off-shored

No one I know thinks this is a successful strategy, including some of the management, but the cost reduction must look good on paper, since it does not factor in the huge productivity losses in trying to interact with colleagues in a different time-zone whom you never meet.


The model can only be effective when you have straight-forward tasks which can be achieved by following a standard process flow; however, such tasks are in fact candidates for automation. Anything requiring problem-solving and grey areas requires skilled local staff working collaboratively, however Nokia seems incapable of fostering such a culture


Nokia is also highly reluctant to invest in its staff, preferring instead to operate large parts of the business through the use of contractors
Pros
Some very good people
Cons
Very 'us and them' mentality even internally

Pros
Long work days

Lot smaller then it used to be.

Good balance between life and work. diverse culture, it feel great to work with people from different part of world. i got exposure to other field apart from telecommunications as Nokia has other software product.Flexible and efficient ways of working. good focus on OH&S as well as quality.
Learned pretty good skills of PMP working with experienced management team. i got enough motivated that i am pursuing PRINCE2 certification.

Challenge- Due to Nokia's limited exposure to Australian mobile telecom, it is hard to get consistent work from Nokia.

Working with good combination of new and experienced team was great experience.
Pros
Great team, Flexible ways of working, Strong focus on OH&S
Cons
Not strong enough base in Australian Mobile market

Nokia recently took over from Alcatel-Lucent and has been restructuring ever since, including shutting down some lines of business that do not fit Nokia core functions. It is not clear if this part of the merged company will survive in any recognisable form.
