    I have been working at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    An opportunity to travel and have broad exposure to stakeholders, smart casual dress code and some sites, even a free lunch.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance outside HQ, significant financial issues where Danes are protected but other areas suffer, lack of commitment to local markets, no opportunities unless you're Danish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your global talent, align practices across regions, be fair to your bread and butter.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Vestas Wind Systems.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview, one face-to-face interview, a reference check and a personality test. Pretty lengthy process but company HR always keeps in touch every week. Applied through the university's job portal and received the first response from the company within a week.
