    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    Pros

    Vestas is a pure wind energy player, and it is the most successful wind energy company worldwide. There is real innovation on the wind turbine engineering side, and strong business acumen on the commercial side.

    Cons

    Management can be seen as a bit old-fashioned. Management is not really integrating into the emerging energy trends due to lack of leadership on future-looking businesses (solar, battery storage, smart grid, demand response, energy markets, EVs, etc...).

    Pros

    Lots of good work to be done if you know how to market yourself. Plenty of resources to learn the state of the art technology

    Cons

    Poor Management in Chennai office. The management team and the HR Team in Chennai are sub standard at best. Evaluation criteria for India offices are based on metrics that are suitable for Scandinavian offices. Some important local elements are completely missed in the process of striving for improvement. Working style is hierarchical however, the office operates under the facade of a flat organization as promoted in Denmark. It doesnt serve the purpose of either working styles. Unnecessarily secretive working style too.
