    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for advancement… processes and governance issues are always changing... projects with a mandate and clear goals are numerous and ever changing so people with various project management skills (or lack thereof) can find fertile ground to add success stories to their resumes.

    Cons

    Too many changes for too long a time have left the company with a staff that is less than 100% motivated to believe in the next leader, project, or process that has 'top priority'. After all, most people that have been there for more than 18 months understand that their job is on the line - always. An old boys network protects the interests of the network, and this is very difficult to break in to.

    Advice to Management

    1). Outsource everything that others do better (also capital expenditure projects) 2). Get worldwide partners to run implementation and service businesses 3). Focus upon the R&D innovations 4). Get a strong Finance partner to make a serious strategy for hedging in foreign currencies (see section 38 of the 2011 annual report) and follow that strategy. 5).

    Pros

    Promotes a greener planet by developing sustainable energy solutions.

    Cons

    Vestas management is a white, Danish, old boys club. If you aren't a member of that club, you do not get advancement opportunities. The company claims to be international, but the only culture they see as valid is Danish. Things like financial responsibility, cost control, minimizing operational cost, and thinking about things from the customer's perspective are non-existent or a distant second.

    Advice to Management

    The customer needs to come first. Meeting and exceeding their expectations, anticipating and avoiding their headaches, and putting forth a cost affective solution are all that matter. Anything else is noise, drama, and needless expense. Time to get back to basics.
