Wonderful people, incredible commitment, new German management ineffective

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nordex

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

ConsNew 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 Senior ManagementSee cons. Consider that all of the best brains in the company may not be in Germany.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great group of folks and interesting company--could use some inter-company changes.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsPays 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.

ConsForeign 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.

Great Work-life balance

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

I worked at Nordex full-time for more than a 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 Senior ManagementFocus on the strengths. If the small market is the focus, do not expand more than the company is capable of.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
