    Pros

    Employees are committed, intelligent, knowledgeable. Good and kind in dealings with others. Collaborative approach. "Get it done" mentality encourages creativity and opportunity.

    Cons

    New management in Germany is ineffective, unfamiliar with American markets, short-term thinking and poor communicators and planners. Bad strategies based around increasing centralization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See cons. Consider that all of the best brains in the company may not be in Germany.

    I have been working at Nordex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays well, nice PTO and benefits, teamwork driven environment, friendly, management encourages a good balance between life and work, really fun and smart people. Management recognizes the input of all employees. Really great well rounded experience. The company is still growing and it was exciting to be a part of it.

    Cons

    Foreign employees are given preference. HR department is subpar and I never had a feeling that they would help me in a time of need. They royally messed up on a few situations with other employees. And certain employees are not held accountable for their mistakes. Not a lot of room for growth beyond a couple years for many employees at the Chicago office due to lack of middle management.

    Former Employee - Wind & Site Assessment in Beijing, Beijing (China)

    I worked at Nordex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - One of the best work-life balance companies I know of.
    - Employee-friendly, most people have worked there for more than 5 years, company provide good benefits
    - Overall good teamwork attitude across the office

    Cons

    - A little too employee-oriented, favor employee well-being over business
    - Not global-oriented enough, still favors home market due to personal preferences

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the strengths. If the small market is the focus, do not expand more than the company is capable of.
