    I worked at Senvion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for. Took good care of employees, pay was pretty good with some occasional overtime. You don't have to work under direct supervision, which is alaways nice.

    Cons

    Raises were very few and far between. Nobody got a raise until two or more years of service. Not much opportunity to advance locally.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally, as well as put equal faith in the quality of work of each technician. Show employees respect.

    Pros

    Nice people in the organization

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic organization with a top down approach on a global basis which makes it very difficult to get anything completed. A one size fits all approach irrespective of any local market.

    Empower the people

    Pros

    Great company with lots of benefits, very successful. Look after staff very well with gym mebership and a good all round package including pension, cycle to work, car scheme healthcare etc.

    Cons

    Can be restrictive and lumbered by a management decision making process which goes back to Germany. Can be very demanding on personal time

    Advice to Management

    Not really much to say here as the local management team are set KPIs and objectives by the central organisation in Germany
