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

    Pros

    Short hours, good vacations and business meals.

    Cons

    Poor management, condescending attitude of Danish headquarter, low pay, low benefits, resentment from customers, lack of local technical knowhow, no accountability by the management. Complex and inefficient management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease your workforce in Denmark, hire senior executives who are experienced in the wind industry and Asia, give ownership and accountability to local people.

    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...

      Good pay and awesome benefits as long as you can keep them before your fired for some dumb reason

      Cons

      too much nepotism, poor management, they would rather fire you for you that work with you on issue that could be easily corrected. It is a revolving door. People always numerous people constently quitting and people getting fired for the most ridiculous situations. Vestas does not care about the employee. You can be there 1 year or 7 years and if they decide they don't want...

        Advice to Management

        Try to learn the business first to be able to plan and decide, especially to newly hired bosses. They should have an exam before they actually be able to decide for the company. Value best people in every departments to have a stable business, do not retain leaders that are being paid very high but have not actually given any value to the business. I think they should have cleansed first the leaders before the people...
