    Pros

    Management is awesome, they're patient, and you feel valued. One of my biggest regrets in life is leaving these guys. I just wish the commute was shorter, and they had dedicated roles in IT Security.

    Cons

    They can be a little disorganized at times, but Management overall has a good head on their shoulders.

    Advice to Management

    Give a little more flexibility to work from home, and spend a little more on IT. You're getting big, you need a Security team. And I know just the person for the job. ;)

    I worked at Vaisala full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a true engineering focus at Vaisala. The company is fairly stress free if you strive toward mediocrity. So, if you are looking to get a good, stable position with little real world pressure or metrics to perform against, this is a great company for you.

    Cons

    If you are a performer, you will find it frustrating at Vaisala. Pay scales are largely communal in nature, which seeks to equalize the strong and poor performers.

    Advice to Management

    The company has floated around €250m for about 15 years if memory serves me correctly. This means in terms of real value of that they have lost ground. They act like a social workfare agency rather than a competitive market entity. A true waste of potential. The North American CEO is wholly unqualified for the position.
