    Pros

    A big company which can give you all sorts of challenges if you're looking for one!
    very versatile and international. Good working environment and people.

    Cons

    A lot of lay offs in the past four years has dampened trust a bit. A lot of restrictions due being a corporate company and basically looking to grow by any cost!

    Advice to Management

    I would say to have common sense, if you always say that the market is challenging so why do you want to increase profit every year? if it is that challenging settle with last years profit.

    Pros

    Probably depends on which location you are working at, but in my opinion Wärtsilä values the employees, lets you educate yourself, supports career development.

    Cons

    As it's quite a large company, there are some silos and your job description might not be as vast as you'd like. I guess that suits some people better than others.
