    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.

    Pros

    Great people, great products and position in the industry Exciting and dynamic environment.

    Cons

    Work harder, not smarter approach. Strategy implementation throughout the business is weak. Silos and poor processes are abundant. Strongest leadership has left, slow to back-fill. Feels aimless.

    Advice to Management

    Hire strong, decisive leaders who can drive change.

    Pros

    Always interesting tasks and challenges ahead, with a global and "green" footprint within a healthy and leading company with very good corporate culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes too volatile, as decisions in SBU are often defined by short term goals and planning only starts at firm-order-intake.

    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy life as there are No Orders and No Work .... also direction less management in India who do not know dam about INDIA .... for freshers it is still good but for experience not advisable as all the decisions are getting driven from Denmark ... so your learning your decision making power is Zero, No Learning Curve, just work as good clerk ....... You can learn politics very well here ....

    Cons

    Its sinking ship, highly unstable, every now & then people gets fired without assigning any reason ...... also there are no Orders coming in for last three years despite capital investing in Blade Factory, so most likely they might do down scale in 2018 so would create un stability & difficult for experienced people ....

    Advice to Management

    Its a waste of time & energy .... they don't listen to anyone ... rather you will be fired ...
