    Pros

    - Treated very fairly as an employee
    - Benefits are not spectacular but are above average
    - The company intends to provide a good work environment and has good values

    Cons

    It is a very chaotic company. Processes are lacking and the business leadership to fix the problems is also lacking. This sometimes creates a very unfulfilling environment because it's difficult to accomplish what you want.

  2.  

    Great people and products. Processes way too cumbersome for the company to be agile.

    Pros

    Vaisala Louisville is an engineering outpost of the mother company in Finland. As a separate entity, this location's people are very close and work well together. They take pride in their products and are very knowledgeable in a broad range of applications.

    Cons

    Communication between groups in the U.S. and Finland are difficult until personal on-on-one relationships are built - impossible when travel is frozen. Many VERY complex processes (established in Finland) to get things done makes even the smallest product change take far too much time and too many peoples' efforts. Major organizational changes have helped some projects, but crippled others. Product line maybe getting TOO diverse?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the processes. Allow U.S. engineering some autonomy in their product development. Not every product needs to meet world-wide features/desires/requirements. Potentially run with a smaller subset of the product line, but tuned to U.S. markets?
