    It used to be nice, now all cost cutting and downsizing has taken all fun out of it.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great bosses, even though this can vary a lot.

    Cons

    Emphasis on Asian market means no good job possibilities in Europe; cost cutting affects innovation and development as everyone keeps fighting who has to pay.

    I have been working at Stora Enso

    Pros

    Even in economic problems, not many people lose jobs. Lots of security...no one will make a decision to fire you.

    Cons

    Limited chances if you are not Finnish. New CEO is good and honest, but has a team who learned the old Finnish ways from the old CEO...they can't make decisions or think there is a world outside Finland

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO: sack a lot of "old-thinking" management. Get some new ideas from inside and outside
    To the Senior Management: get an atlas. There is a world outside your own country. Making no decisions, and pretending the market will get good soon will make the future worse. If you'd decided to take Summa actions in 2006 instead of hiding its problems by juggling orders, maybe other mills could have been saved.
