    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great and pay is good

    Cons

    Job security... yearly changes lay-offs due to the company structuring for the future. This seems to have everyone on edge about their jobs and makes them less open to doing things better. Not the most professional atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the yearly layoffs and allow employees to apply to open positions.

    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.
