    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    In comparison with Siemens Wind Power (currently Siemens Gamesa), Vestas is a much better place if you are looking forward to work on interesting projects or implement initiatives. Plus, it's always uplifting to work for something sustainable.

    Cons

    However, it's just another corporation with numerous corporate leeches with no initiative, looking for a 8:00-16:30 job and a Danish pension afterwards. Awkward coworkers and lunches as usual.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Short hours, good vacations and business meals.

    Cons

    Poor management, condescending attitude of Danish headquarter, low pay, low benefits, resentment from customers, lack of local technical knowhow, no accountability by the management. Complex and inefficient management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease your workforce in Denmark, hire senior executives who are experienced in the wind industry and Asia, give ownership and accountability to local people.
