    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time (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

    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.

      Pros

      Vestas is a company with strong values and treats its employees well. The company employs great people and has a nice atmosphere. People who work there really believe in the company's product, wind energy and are experts in this industry. Vestas is a great engineering company.

      Cons

      Unfortunately the company was in a constant state of chaos and transition with multiple rounds of layoffs during the two years I worked there (2010-2012). Often these layoff rounds appeared to be conducted without much assessment of what the staff who were laid off were doing and no plan for how to pass their work on to others- this slowed down productivity significantly. In addition the company is too big for what its...
