Nokia is a wonderful company that give an employee an opportunity to travel and learn from other colleagues overseas.
They support continuing studies either you enrol in school or in their webinars.
Hardest part of the job is working with different timezones and managing staff from different continents. The staff that are located in different countries – more... are cooperative and reply in a timely manner when I ask for information from them. – less

A typical day was interesting because in my position I got to interact with people all over the world.

My immediate manger was exceptional. The hardest part of the job was figuring out – more... exactly what the problem any given user was having and trying to find a suitable workaround. Sometimes communication was difficult when working with people from other countries but those things also made the job enjoyable. Its fun to help people. – less

I found that Nokia (formerly NAVTEQ) offered many opportunities to learn new technologies and systems on a daily basis. The job entails working with big sets of data prompting all kinds of issues. Every day is something new and different, and you are working with some extremely intelligent people. The company itself offers many perks including great – more... facilities, excellent benefits, a good bonus plan, and salaries are very competitive. I learned to work within an Agile framework, established an extremely competent sense of operations, and was able to train employees in proprietary software systems, and worked with some amazing people in terms of knowledge and personalities. A great experience. – less

T The best part of the job are the relationships with customers and colleagues. The hardest part is convincing both internal and external parties to reach a compromise position allowing all parties to accomplish their goals.

My time at Nokia was my most memorable employer because I basically matured into the person I am today because of my colleagues and superiors at Nokia. I enjoyed going to work everyday while I was there, and although it was unfortunate that I was laid off; my parting with Nokia was pleasant and professional. I would like to someday find my way back – more... to Nokia. – less
