Fun workplace. Diverse cultures.
My daily tasks included preparing proposals for engine services aboard cruise ships, boarding vessels during port stays to speak with engine room personnel regarding services. I have had the pleasure to travel around the world, amazing.

A varsity level company.
WDI is a great company.
Pay is great with OT.

Your peers are very helpful.

WDI is very well equipped and invest in their technicians.

There are days off and you'll be on call. Only thing that sucks is when you're at home your pay gets cut.

Management is pretty decent.

Awful place to work.
Awful place to work. Don't believe the fluff that's sold to you to get you in the door. Your talent is not appreciated or respected unless you are a part of a "certain" culture.

It was a joy to work at this company; its personnel was the reason I worked 15 years as their Administrator Assistant.
I loved working for Wartsila NA for fifteen years. Worldwide travelers were frequent and kept the work environment challenging and interesting. I learned to deal with an array of unique personalities and cultural diversities as well as adapting to different needs/requirements for each task at hand. The most enjoyable part of my experience at Wartsila, was the amazing staff who became my family away from home. The most difficult challenge was to earn the recognition I deserved due to the large group of people I assisted, each from different departments which had their own budget but did not include services for my position.

Stepping Stone
Work and home life do not balance. No room for advancement if you don't have a College Degree but its a good stepping stone to learn and move on. Upper management is not great.

Poorly managed
Middle management and upper management are disconnected from actual real work. They have no empathy towards employees or their families. Work culture there is some people do way too much and the others do very little.
Pros
Healthcare and 401k
Cons
Very poorly managed

What I learned
My time Wartsilla was short due to the energy business moving from regulated to unregulated. GE was in a better position in the US market compared to the Finnish company. The decline in business meant the closure and relocation of the North American headquarter from Annapolis to Houston
