    I worked at Senvion

    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

    I worked at Senvion for less than a year

    Pros

    Company are quite generous with perks at times for example flying people to the UK to attend 10 yr anniversary party. Pretty much your own boss on site. Company laptop, van, credit card and phone if you like that sort of thing. Loads of overtime. 2 weeks in Germany at their training school which is a bit of a doss.

    Cons

    Poor basic wage, which leads to having to work a lot of overtime which leads to poor work life balance. Far too much time spent on paperwork. A handful of used/worn tools to use (you can't use your own). 1week in 3 you will be on call.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down heavily on the techs paperwork.

    Former Employee - Production and Material Planner in Welland, ON

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Senvion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We had an excellent benefits and pension program. Pay was decent. Managers who were always willing to help with difficult situations. I was given (and took) the opportunity for advancement a couple of times in the 2 years that I worked there.

    Cons

    Powerblades in Welland closed its doors in November 2015. There were 136 employees that lost their jobs that month and it was a horrible thing to happen to the community.

    Advice to Management

    There were a few times when the management team had disagreements. It was normal and fine that these would happen, but it was unprofessional for those situations to happen in front of other (non-managerial) employees.
