Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Horribly ran operation, worst management team that I have seen communication, no standards, everyone just goes through the motions. Management blows up in your face one day and the next day you don't even get a hello. This place needs help, fast..."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Poor management, no idea of how to generate new business."


"Revolving door of Middle and Senior Management. extremely understaffed departments to support a lean enterprise puts enormous amounts of pressure on the employees. No follow through or accountability at each level of the organization. No training or support provided when requested."

Senior Manager says

"No leadership ... Those in leadership positions (Atlanta) are clueless."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Once they have you they will grind you for working time expecting long hours without compensation. The employee reviews are non-existent just a series of abstract KPI's. The Finnish Managers are very cold with poor people skills. The customer is king, if you have one bad experience they will come down on you like a ton of bricks."


"they don't take care of or have any respect for good workers. have to go through an act of good to get parts to fix or do anything. over all it's a joke."

Project Manager - North American Paper Improvement Projects (Former Employee) says

Comprador (Current Employee) says

"não tem compromisso com terceiros. Empresa não oferece oportunidades.localizaçãoclima e compromisso"

Engineering Technician (Current Employee) says

"It was a horrible environment and culture. The engineering manager talked down and belittled the guys from the shop daily as well as other designers/engineers. The culture was extremely toxic and none conducive to advancing. I'm all for talk with the boys but the amount of profanity towards other employees and the conversations around female employees was unheard of. There was no direction from management to the designers which in turn lead to horrible details to the shop. Hard to think of.Constant accidents in the shop, no time to design work, no control over what drawing revisions were received in the shop"

Machinist (Former Employee) says

"Worked here for 6 months as a “machinist” if you’re an actual machinist this isn’t the place for you... plant manager will lie straight to your face, there’s not an employee in this place that likes him.. all production machining (if he tells you different) low pay, good vacation time, and good coworkers but management and the actual work are completely terrible I wouldn’t come back for $100 an hour"

Production Scheduler (Former Employee) says

"Do as much as possible no matter what it takes. The plant manager they brought in after I began was not a good manager and it is evident. Toxic work environment."

Mill Sales Manager - MSN (Former Employee) says

"What was 5 persons in the territory, became 1. Meeting with potential customers became secondary to keeping database updated.

Técnico de manutenção (Former Employee) says

"Parte mais difícil do trabalho: Horário Parte mais agradável do trabalho: Equipa onde estava inserido"

Supervisor, Covering and Grinding Operations (Current Employee) says

"This is a decent place to work. It is an international organization with locations throughout the United States and the ability to transfer to different locations as space/positions become available."

Project Manager (Current Employee) says

"there is no motivation and no mentor programs for you to feel like you can move up in the company. Co-workers are great but management is micro manager with no people relations skills."

Machinist (Former Employee) says

"Union job, good pay, nice co-workers, management is useless and will jump down your throat in two seconds. Faced many situations where management would bang on tables and scream at employees over issues with the shop."

Machinist Operator (Current Employee) says

"Is a good place to work; good benefits, good pay. Management needs a lot of help though. Has gotten stuck in a rut in Columbus and is on its way out of it; but still isn’t a bad place to work."

Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) says

Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) says

"No surprises, just like most other equipment manufacturing. Never enough time to properly design and document equipment. Equipment design was often based on products made in the 1980's.could often work from homeeverything is rushed and only was allowed to use 3D cad."

koneasentaja (Former Employee) says

"oli aikoinaan hyvä paikka,ei enää olekkaan sitä,oppi asennuksiakonepajakoulupalkat siihenaikaan huonot"

Angestellter (Former Employee) says

"Das Unternehmen als internationaler Arbeitgeber kann man durchaus als gut bewerten. Modern mit allen Möglichkeiten. Die deutsche Niederlassung hat nichts davon. Alte, diktatorische Strukturen, die nicht jedem liegen. Wer angagiert ist und berufliche Visionen hat, sollte sich woanders umsehen oder in Finnland anheuern."

Senior Technical Specialist Specialist (Former Employee) says

"VEry talented in their profession of machine manufactur4ing for the paper industry. Very talented work force, worked long hours but enjoyed my job. I saw a decline when the company went on trade for stock, the Finnish goverment was outstanding and great to work for. Treated employees very well. When the bought Beloit an american company, I saw a great decline in how the company treated others, I think the bought some of the Beloit mentality they needed to have stayed away from.Benifitsamount of travel"
