    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Trainings. If passionate about engineering and different mechanical and electrical things, thats the right place for you.

    Cons

    Only those get promoted who lick fifth spot. If you are a technician and constantly improving skills noone will tell you great job, so there is no encouragement. However if someone is ignorant but licks well, for sure he will be promoted to Technical support even though he cant repair a turbine while the others do it for 5 minutes. Another disadvantage is constant people flow. Guys come, absorb skills and leave...

    Advice to Management

    Value thougthful people, those with imagination instead of lickers

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have a great training facility in Portland, Oregon. The insurances are affordable and have tolerable coverage. The 401k has a 3% match.

    Cons

    They do not train well to prepare you for the jobs you actually face in the field of work. The pay compared to risk and expectations is substantially lower than other trades and companies doing similar work.

    Advice to Management

    Have the trainers work in the field on the different platforms before they train for that specific platform. Review the pay and advancement used in other high risk positions and adapt to be competitive.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and uniform plans, great hours, good equipment, personal laptop and cell phone.

    Cons

    Not very good hourly pay for the responsibility and hazards. There is no reasoning with management if something is done wrong. Not much room for creativity, tasks are done by work instructions only. Tons of paperwork for JSA,LOTO forms,PTP, and the list goes on. Takes longer to do paperwork then the task in most cases.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees they know whats going on out there in the field!
