    Pros

    Good pay excellent benefits and opportunities for advancement. You get a raise every six months. We have a reasonable point system. Diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of internal drama. Dusty work environment, that can be very hot while wearing proper PPE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better training to new employees and have meetings off the production floor. Keep somebody inside the tool distribution at ALL times

    I worked at LM Wind Power full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of vacation, top out pay and benefits in two years, above average starting pay for an entry level position

    Cons

    Production first, due to poor work schedule = not family friendly, can be dirty/sweaty, unpredictable end time. You are told stay until the job gets done and management goes home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to recognize your best workers with the most potential and loyalty. Don't pass someone over just because of their lack of education. Experience and know how should count for something. HR needs to follow through with it's promises and guarantees.

    Pros

    Working for Renewable Energy, Apparently good looking pay package.

    Cons

    While there are many good people still in LM, there are quite a few, particularly in India, who have no work ethics. New people are treated as "not wanted here", and the style of management is hire and fire. Anyone who doesn't party (read excessive alcohol) are treated as not fitting the company culture. Have never imagined that a company could function like this. HR team is defunct. Need to be blacklisted by head hunters and placement centers in institutes. Even road side shops are managed better these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Global Senior Management - review the value addition by Senior people in the organization. More than 50% do not add any value to the organization.

    Pros

    Nothing in the current scenario

    Cons

    Starts from the top. If you look at their Strategy/Forecasts etc. it is simply cut and paste from others' - Bloomberg. And there is no link between this and ground level implementation. Strategy office, CFO office etc. do not understand some basic Business terms also. Everyone in India right from director level wants to leave this org, The only reason they can't leave because recruiters have not heard of this company and doesn't have any brand. If someone meets the top guys in India, they would understand - no communication skill, no knowledge about industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merge with some other capable company

    Pros

    Not much in the current state of Industry, was a decent org few years back. But not good these days.

    Cons

    Top management is not competent. Even the so called Strategy Office is full of guys, who can be Executive Assistants in other companies. Everyone seems so insecure that they try to save their skin only. Nobody seems to care about any improvement. I have seen almost all the top guys and listened to them. But they look low caliber people. They are unethical too, they throw parties when the companies is cash-strapped. This is so rampant in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really a Turnaround time, it is a downward spiral. With this kind of management, company is bound to struggle and with this struggle, they can;t attract any good guy.

    I worked at LM Wind Power

    Pros

    The people with-in LM are excellent and very easy to work with. Management, especially the new CEO, are trying to do the right things in a very tough business climate.

    Cons

    Constant changes in production volumes. The last five years have seen several workforce reductions and several plants shut down globally. Many great ideas from staff R&D, but very few get truly implmented and sustained globally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a few critical projects and ensure they get implemented and sustained.
