    I worked at Gamesa full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Supported Chief Business Officer: scheduling appointments, correspondence, reports, spreadsheets, time keeping and expense reports. Voluntarily supported five department heads which saved company two years administrative salaries.  Implemented electronic library of conference presentations, committee meetings, and newsletter information which comprised a single-source reference for all managers' use in workshops, training, sales, and presentations.  Consulted consistently and requested for software resolution issues. Redirected clients concern for resolution to appropriate department contact. Created PowerPoint presentations promoting manufacturing concepts to groups of students, public officials and customers.

    Cons

    Supporting upper management was challenging due to their pressures and attitudes but the company as a whole was an awesome company to work for, only negative is that there was too much turnover due to changes in corporate ideas of how to run a USA company from Spain! Thats why all the CEOs of all Gamesa's Corporations in USA and their assistants were laid off at the same time and exchanged with new management! Cutting costs and personnel isn't always the best move for a company.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Gamesa full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great industry, freedom and great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Gamesa Corporate made all of the decisions, US management couldn't get anything useful done without being blocked by Spain. Several years without building anything. Great projects sitting and ready to be built and aren't because they're not approved. The projects that are approved were ones that made no sense to build. No standards or processes in place. Not a tremendous amount of institutional knowledge.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Gamesa for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly environment with helpful and understanding managers and senior engineers. The engineering office is based close to the production floor, which helps the engineers to go down on the floor regularly.

    Cons

    The company is still growing in the US and has limited projects in hand. The headquarters is based in Spain, hence they control most of the management decisions.
