    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...

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Bankers will create problems but ultimately, the vision is there and the structure is there.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the moral of your employees.

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with successful backgrounds in management.

    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

    Advice to Management

    Resign and let someone else take over

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to have a clear vision for the future. They need to develop products for today and come up with a solid road map for the future.
