Disapproves of CEO

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.

    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 Management

    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?

    I have been working at Vaisala full-time

    Pros

    Great Products and Great Benefits

    Cons

    Working with product managers and other parties in Finland is challenging. Lack of training for new positions. All training is done by the employee on there own
