Nokia has a very relaxed work style. Performance driven. Employees are encouraged to work independently. Working from home is encouraged. Management is however very demanding and reporting needs to be precise and to the point. Multiple Cultures are supported without discrimination. Enjoyed working independently .

Working at Nokia was a great learning experience.
I have learned from Inside plant, Outside plant and construction, fiber splicing, testing and installations

Working conditions was great.

Team spirits very high at Nokia.

Hardest part of work was relying on other parties to ensure timelines are met.

Most enjoyable time was when timelines were met and all third parties was comfortable with the outcome.

Within the Nokia Group I learned that no Mountain is to high and no challenge to great. Nokia's Teamwork is great.

It is said that when employed by nokia you are a Nokian as part of the nokia family.
