    I worked at Wärtsilä North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of travel and you get to see new countries

    Cons

    Finish guys are very rude to Americans.

    Advice to Management

    Get the Finish management out of the US. Even those finish guys with their nationality being American and having finish God fathers from Finland get all the tailored promotions and benefits. There is nothing An American manager can do abt it. You can't change the system. Any American or especially military person will have very hard time. All rules are for Americans but they work around if you are from Finland or Poland.

    I worked at Wärtsilä North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has decent salaries, a good benefit package, and option to work from home

    Cons

    Leadership SUCKS, no clear leadership. Management is very insecure about their own positions. No team work, majority of the staff are senior citizens who just need a job prior to retirement, this is not a place to grow professionally. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy

    Advice to Management

    Put some leadership in management, hire people who can actually encourage team work


  3. "Very tumultuous place to work regarding advancement opportunities."

    Pros

    Global company and present throughout the world. Very good benefits. Matching 401K which outperformed the most on the market. Bonus yearly,not big but better than nothing in todays economy. It depend on the manager how your position would be treated. Most of them are really good in understanding difference between private and company life. Telecommuting available and allowed with managers consent.

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility and almost no chance to be promoted. They prefer Finish management style in higher management . Maybe they are correct. in that assumption. Due to problem in economy some positions are downsized, however without any reason and you are unceremoniously thrown out like an old rag. It is a place , for some employees where you stay for a paycheck, nothing more.

    Advice to Management

    None, they would not listen anyway.
