    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great culture, high performance is rewarded. Adequate resources are provided, goals are challenging but reasonable. The business is in a sustainable environment with a good future outlook. Salary is decent, and bonus is achievable. They invest a lot in R&D to keep a good portfolio going into the future. Morale seems to be universally good across differing SBU's and the europeans (especially from Germany) have a good opinion of the US teams.

    Cons

    often times there is little opportunity for advancement - not too many people want to leave so that makes for a lot of competition on open roles. They are an engineering company at heart so in order to really advance, it is easier if you are an engineer by degree. Sometimes you must take lateral positions in order to get the background of experience they want for more senior roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on the importance of the marketing function. Sometimes it feels like the executive management team feels like marketing is a necessary evil rather than a value add.

    Current Employee - Internship Offshore Wind in The Hague (Netherlands)

    Pros

    Good mentorship, winning team mode. Learned a lot about the financial aspects of offshore wind energy. The team is the right size (20-30 people), allowing to get to know each other. Lots of calculations with Matlab however making the work sometimes a little boring. Would be nice to be in the field more often.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, both gender nationality and background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The manager of the department David Molenaar is a very motivating person. I am confident that he will make it to the higher ranks within the organisation.
