    I have been working at Pöyry

    Pros

    Good people to work with, flexible, friendly working environment. Many opportunities to progress for consultancy staff. Good benefits and pay levels. Great multi-national working environment. Work hard and play hard! All staff are very committed to their roles.

    Cons

    Support staff are not valued as highly as the consultancy staff and that makes it difficult to maintain morale. All staff work really hard to make the company a success and it is a real shame when only a select few are recognised for this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value ALL team members, they all work hard to make the company a success, not just the select few! You have some highly committed support staff who are dedicated and put 150% into their role for the company, don't dismiss this!

    I have been working at Pöyry

    Pros

    The salary is Ok and you get a decent life work balance, projects can be interesting sometimes

    Cons

    There are absolutely no accountabilities and nobody knew what they were doing, no sign of appreciation. You can spend one year without knowing what you really have to do. Consultants should be hired to think and expand business, not to do the routine work of analysts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify roles, accountability and authority and allow people to get creative with their own ideas

    Really nice for those who like working with projects. You get to know many things, will surely visit a plant.

    Managers should have more soft skills to develop their teams.
