Other Wartsila North America, Inc Employee Reviews
Job Work/Life Balance
Solid company with good values, can be tough working away from HQ
Area IM Manager, Americas (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 January 2019
Wärtsilä is a fantastic company and you will find yourself working alongside great people who truly embody the ethics and values of this almost 200-year old company.
If you are willing to relocate, opportunity abounds and you will be given chances to advance and evolve into new roles. However, if you work outside of Finland or some of the other larger officer centers, it can be difficult to find advancement opportunity.
One ongoing challenge was the time zone difficulty in managing meeting coordinate with differences up to 10 hours back to senior management and 14 hours across our team. This can be stressful to stay in the loop of what is going on while respecting the boundaries with your family.
Overall I would recommend Wärtsilä as an employer, I would just encourage people to go in with eyes open and realize that there are both big positives but also challenges.
Great company culture, international opportunities and dynamic business
large time zone differences, limited opportunities without relocation
Controller (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 14 November 2018
Company believes in its employees. They promote education and mentorship. They like to promote within, but they also expect an honest days work. You stay until the job is complete and missing deadlines is not an option
