    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Vestas has a knack of attracting good people, but not very good at holding onto them.

    Cons

    Management talks the talk, but does not walk the walk. Employees are just a number! Felt like I was always being urged to fit square pegs into round holes. Promotion is not very easily attained. Pay and benefits were not adequate for the industry. Bonus was BS and very rarely paid out.

    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.
