    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vestas is a great place to learn about wind, renewables, how products and components work and to meet a lot of great people. They have an awesome onboarding system and really work to make sure you get trained in whatever area you need.

    Cons

    Layoffs started within 3 months of my hire date. The wind industry is not a stable career unless you are in the service technician category. They hired the best and brightest and laid them off without qualms. Although Vestas is a "global company" don't ever forget that it is a Danish company and when the going gets tough, everything goes back to Denmark.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expand worldwide in 2 years - then retract back to Denmark in 6 months.
    Really understand what different backgrounds bring to the table and utilize those in a more effective manner.
    Neither engineers or manufacturing people are expendable. You spend a huge amount of time and money training them. Make it count.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vestas Wind Systems (Louisville, CO (US)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    After a round of Campus interviews I was invited to an on-site interview. The first round of on-site interviews was a fiasco with the interviewers telling me that they wanted an undergraduate student (I am a grad student). The interviewers still continued with the interview.
    Subsequently I was invited for another interview which was more in sync with my experience. The interview mostly consisted of discussion of my resume, a few control system questions etc. Not too difficult
