      Pros

      Hours aren't bad. Some of the bosses are a little demanding.

      Cons

      Room for growth in a shrinking market

      Pros

      Great benefits, competitive salary. Hard work and initiative are noticed and rewarded. While the paper industry is shrinking the company has broadened its product scope to include bio energy. With paper manufacturing being the foundation of these new segments, it ensures a long term presence in the paper market.

      Cons

      Headquarters located in Finland. Some disconnect in Global processes - The US market is not the European markent and one process does not fit all.

      Pros

      I work in Finland and benefits are amazing! Management style is amazing because they trust in the employees. Supervisors are not checking you all the time and they trust on you

      Cons

      Finland is an amazing country but is very far away. I do not see any cons.
