    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Short hours, good vacations and business meals.

    Cons

    Poor management, condescending attitude of Danish headquarter, low pay, low benefits, resentment from customers, lack of local technical knowhow, no accountability by the management. Complex and inefficient management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease your workforce in Denmark, hire senior executives who are experienced in the wind industry and Asia, give ownership and accountability to local people.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    Pros

    Young culture, environmentally friendly company, depending on your work location there can be many perks.

    Cons

    Company is continually deaf to employee surveys and feedback (especially if you live outside of Denmark), many jobs are now being outsourced and the outsourcing is managed poorly. Reporting structures can be difficult if you work in one country but report to a group that sits in another.
