great benefits as mentioned by all
for the most part, macro stype managment, you are allowed freedom to do your work
market leader, usually good / advanced tools to do your job
company recognizes good employee performance
they make mistakes at times (like all companies)
in its core form it is a company that provides engineering solutions, there is not necessarily growth available for all functions
many decisions are made overseas and trickle down to the local company although they may not always make sense due to the local market
Advice to Management
stay focused on the future.....
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Wärtsilä North America in February 2009.
Very long interview process , first interview is with your manager. They are very thorough , due to fact that job is very demanding and require high level of technical expertise. If you pass first interview , second interview is scheduled , and second was conducted as group panel interview. Many questions will be asked and better be prepared to highlight your experience and skills . Second interview lasted about 1 hour . After the interview if you are accepted , manager will follow up with the offer.
There was no viable negotiation. Manger has all cards in his hands. Questions can be asked ,however again, according to my experience not many chances to negotiate. Job offer was fair.
