    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    Good safety program, full benefits, matched 401k, year-end bonuses, vacation time, travel opportunities, plenty of available overtime, great locations (sometimes), and the swaying of the turbine in the wind while you're wrenching on some sweet machinery.

    Cons

    Long commute, inconsistent application of safety and operating policies, long hours, sometimes repetitive work, rough/vulgar coworkers (standard for blue collar).

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a job. Good over time. Portland is fun. Good 401K match.

    Cons

    Everything else. Terrible culture. Managers hired by connection and have almost no skill. Pay is now below industry standard 19.00/hr to start when other companies pay 21.50 or MORE. Portland management is petty and vindictive. Everyone at site pretty much hates job. Been here 8 months and will be leaving soon. HUGE turnover. Wind is growing but Vestas isn't getting many orders compared to other manufacturers so I assume they will be bought out pretty soon and broken up since turbines V-80s are unreliable. I hear so many stories about how bad company is that at first I thought people were joking. Really, you are hurting or delaying your career by coming here.
