Chaos

Project Manager (Former Employee) Portland, OR

ProsVestas is a company with strong values and treats its employees well. The company employs great people and has a nice atmosphere. People who work there really believe in the company's product, wind energy and are experts in this industry. Vestas is a great engineering company.

ConsUnfortunately the company was in a constant state of chaos and transition with multiple rounds of layoffs during the two years I worked there (2010-2012). Often these layoff rounds appeared to be conducted without much assessment of what the staff who were laid off were doing and no plan for how to pass their work on to others- this slowed down productivity significantly. In addition the company is too big for what its management can handle, resulting many operational inefficiencies and in a lack of proper tools, resources and training for employees to do their jobs. Some parts of the company are very technologically advanced and some are stuck in the 90s.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
