I have been working at VTT (More than 3 years)
-Great place to do applied research
-Very multi-disciplinary, good know how in many technical fields
-New CEO seems very promising and could help in renewing VTT
-Communication is sometimes poor and strategic direction is missing
-Too many fragmented and isolated projects
-Lack of leadership
-At the moment government funding for R&D is being reduced which makes it challenging to find project funding
Advice to Management
-Appreciate your people
-Work on company culture and leaderhip skills of your managers
-Find a clear strategy with your employees and take determined steps in implementing it
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at VTT (Turku (Finland)).
invited for a 2-day interview scheme, costs paid in full. There was a large panel of 30 or more research present, followed by face-to face interviews with at least 6 researchers later.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
