    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

    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 you any more they will target you and you are gone.
