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

    Pros

    The company pays very good wages, but they have to in order to get people to work there. The turnover rate especially in the production areas is 10 to 15 percent. They put a lot of emphasis on safety which is a good thing, sometimes to the point where it is a hindrance to Performing maintenance tasks.

    Cons

    Dirty work environment. Company provides respirator equipment for work in dusty areas but these are very warm and uncomfortable especially during the summer months. There is little or no communication or cooperation between the different departments. Department heads have their own agendas and it seems that is all they care about.

    Advice to Management

    Work together as a team. The company is made up of different departments that should function as one with one common goal for success.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -Pay
    -Benefits (sans dental)
    -If you spend 5+ years there you can somewhat move up. No guarantee
    -Will hire anyone
    -Can loudly yell profanity
    -Last fistfight was something like 7+ years ago

    Cons

    -Work until you are done, which means you can be there 17 hours while still expected to come in the following day
    -Hard workers get pressure put on them while people who are either incompetent or lazy get a free pass
    -Work will destroy your back and shoulders
    -Have to do what's called matting which before implemented the company was warned that it would wreck peoples shoulders. Multiple workers have had to get cortisone injections and possible surgery due to this
    -Communication between departments seems to happen but is generally ignored (Same exact problems everyday from lack of caring or trying to push out the blades before they're ready)
    -Company headquarters puts pressure on GF location complaining they do not meet their standards. From what i've heard they get more time to work on the blades and have a better equipped facility
    -Safety is generally ignored in favor of production. Multiple broken or unsafe equipment while location safety person only watches cameras instead of making sure facility is safe
    -Broken/unsafe equipment is on bottom of priority list to be fixed. If it halts production it is fixed within the day
    -Leads are generally lazy and if told about broken equipment don't fill out proper paperwork to get it fixed
    -Have been told we have to work extra days to compensate for being behind. We have been behind for almost a year.
    -Told when you start that you'll work 40 hours at 4 days a week. Reality is 5 days and sometimes 50+ hours
    -I have never once heard a positive thing from management. It's always how we are messing up and can do better

    Since many people don't realize this. You only get overtime for every hour past 40 in the state of north dakota. Work 17 hours one day then 10 the next you get zero OT if you don't work more than 40.

    Advice to Management

    -Actually communicate and fix obvious problems
    -Stop lying to new hires
    -People in the office need to accept the fact that they're bottom of the barrel in the office world for working for a factory.
    -HR is useless for any problem unless it could easily lead to a lawsuit
    -Fire half of the molding department
    -Find a way to somehow make the departments not be behind. When it gets to the point where we are behind by a year I can take a wild guess and assume we are not behind anymore.
    -Just schedule to make people working 5 days a week instead of going WELL WE HAVE TO WORK MONDAY AGAIN every week. It's insanely patronizing

    Pros

    Great pay/ excellent health and visual insurance. they trained us whenever we needed to bone. even if we just wanted to try something new they will put us through the class. we were always busy. rarely had to FIND something to do because there work load kept us busy.

    Cons

    Picking up the slack of slackers. They were harder on the hard workers and let the slackers slide under the radar while we broke our back trying clock out on time.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate the slackers.

    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 Management

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