    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. The people are all very motivated to continue to drive the wind industry forwards. Very open to innovation.

    Cons

    The company can in some areas still be a bit Danish centric. That isn't a con in itself as I always enjoyed going to Denmark, but that effort is required.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems

    Pros

    Good infrastructure,Good colleagues,Work Life balance .

    Cons

    I admire the company .But the company some how has wrong people placed in wrong position Specially in india the Quality Department ,current Senior General Manager & General manager both seated at comfortable position .Senior GM being @ the highest level of decision making even the Local HR doesn't have an upper hand over him .Please en quire about their leadership and management of both in quality department from ex-employees & current employees you will know for yourself.Data points shows none of the people worked under them where happy about their management @ local quality department in india ...The following position in quality (Assistant Manager,Manager,Senior Manager,DGM,Specialist,BB/MBB position opened currently above are under SGM & GM .Please be careful do not get excited looking at the promises they make on the Job description it may look attractive foreign travel.One thing your job is not secure at any time once mission accomplished you are thrown away @ no mercy .There are few good departments who value and respect ex-employee who were laid off .The quality department runs by its own protocol they do not value or respect ex -employees who are laid off so when there is no consideration for their own ex-employees to how much extent are you will be under consideration ....?????I am still to recover from the aftermath of layoff .India doesnt have strong labor laws as Denmark has where the government pay's you if you are job less for a year Please think before you take a decision always ........

    Pros

    European company with good pay and benefits but dealing with the constant change and reorgs is challenging.

    Cons

    Dealing with Danish counterparts can be a challenge to say the least. Be prepared to work at night or early am from time to time if you want to get anything done so that you can coordinate with Denmark employees. Very centralized structure.

    Pros

    Vestas attracts top talent, and all are very motivated to succeed. Fantastic benefits. Start up company mentality. Decent work-life balance as well.

    Cons

    Leadership is in Denmark, and the leadership team is poor. They don't have a good long term strategy and make bad decisions. The past few leaders they have hired have poor track records at other companies, so I'm not sure why they hire them other than they are Danes.

    Pros

    There is nothing to say positive about this company other than its products, rest of it is useless

    Cons

    Management in Denmark detached from reality Merit is not by talent but by who you know and how long you have been in the company

    Pros

    Vestas has fantastic benefits and really emphasizes a great work-life balance. It's a relatively young company, so there's a lot of opportunity to make a big impact.

    Cons

    Vestas is a Danish company. I worked at a satellite office in the US, and it was challenging to get information out of Denmark at times. In addition, there were a lot of 5 am meetings (Colorado time) to communicate with our Danish colleagues.
