    Very Conservative Company. Non Committal Decision Making. No Growth Opportunity.

    Pros

    You will make lots of friends. Company has relatively flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from upper management. Getting decisions is hard. High baby-boomer to young worker ratio. Aging work force is very reluctant to any change, to new ideas and refuses to pass on its knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inefficient company overall. Management should concentrate on promoting individuals with leadership and communication skills instead of seniority.

    Former Contractor - Document Management Coordinator in Charlotte, NC
    Former Contractor - Document Management Coordinator in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Metso as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning data management skills and more about the electronic side of reviewing documents. The document control personell are very knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge with new employees.

    Cons

    Need to practice more working as a team and help each other no matter what department you work for. When rules and procedures are written and approved, that all employees follow them. Too many people in the Charlotte office enter documents into ProArc. Entering documents into the different data bases should be the responsibility of document control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved with what your employers are actually doing. Have more departmental meetings and discuss what needs to be discussed.

    Metso Paper USA Review

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Metso

    Pros

    Lots of lateral freedom in decision-making; technically highly competent organization; pursues constant changes and new business arenas; seeks to provide real customer solutions; very customer-focused; company offers great benefits; generally open, relaxed working atmosphere

    Cons

    Information flow and exchange is often frustrating; personal efforts and accomplishments go generally unnoticed ("extra-mile" is kind of expected); change initiatives are often poorly communicated and executed on the business unit level; limited room for professional growth once a certain level has been attained; remuneration seems below industry standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more effectively with all levels of employees. Provide competent leadership through change processes to help everyone understand your intentions and targets.
    Further, management ought to live up to its claim that Metso's employees are its most important asset.
