    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The people who stay are really great to work with but that is only a few of them.

    Cons

    They will tell you about Holidays that they will make mandatory for you to work, even Christmas and Thanksgiving. They will tell you that your schedule is 4 days on and 3 days off and then 3 days on and 4 days off but make it mandatory you work your days off. If goals are not meet higher Management will say that you must of been working half speed so now you must work 1 of your days off.

    Advice to Management

    Brighton Management is Clueless

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

    Pros

    Good people. Lots of overtime if you want it. Great benefits. Free health insurance for single people. Catered lunches. Year end giveaways. Really hard to get fired.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. 5 10-12 hour shifts. Promotes imbeciles. Retains lazy people and no-call-no-shows. Uses a staffing agency to find employees. No chance of moving up beyond supervisor in the company. Little baby raises equal to pocket change.

    Advice to Management

    Work your employees less. Pay more to those who perform. Give raises more often or of more money.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits Nice offices Good onboarding program

    Cons

    Long hours everyday and affecting family life. But it was more my team that worked like that. I saw many teams actually having a good work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in developing innovative products and services. Don’t rest in the area of improving work-life balance for the staff.
