    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems

    Pros

    You great benefits and solid attempts to help you adjust and move your life style.

    Cons

    Progression is often good oldboy tactics that can stagnate your growth. You usually will have to move every 5years to a new site, because customers often take over there contract which puts you in the need to swap sites, join the customer, or swap careers.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, working conditions aren't bad. Coworkers tend to be pretty great. Acceptable in the current economy.

    Cons

    Typical corporate issues. Nepotism. Favoritism. Lack of clear advancement opportunities. Unknowledgeable and uncaring management. Employee surveys are just an attempt at making employees think they matter and have a say. IT is awful. Nothing too unusual.
