    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.

    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Personal time whenever you need it. Few milestones in workload. Outsiders are jealous of the perception of working for Vestas.

    Cons

    As long as people get along with others, employment will be secure until a random restructure due to poor management and reactionary solution to poor financials. Environment does not reward stars, lowest common denominator drags down the curve. Acts as a large start up company. Unfortunately, the renewable bubble is gone and the management is not qualified to be competitive non-subsidized business model. Company truly takes care of employees with benefits. It is just not a way to advance your career or skill set for when the time comes to leave the company. Hard to replicate the reality distortion field.
