    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. The people are all very motivated to continue to drive the wind industry forwards. Very open to innovation.

    Cons

    The company can in some areas still be a bit Danish centric. That isn't a con in itself as I always enjoyed going to Denmark, but that effort is required.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Bankers will create problems but ultimately, the vision is there and the structure is there.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport, South East England, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Vestas Wind Systems (Newport, South East England, England).

    Interview

    From application to interview, its took almost 6 months. It seems that they were looking for CEO or not capable of making decision. In interview, they kept emphasising on decision making and they are not capable of making a simple decision. Interviewer in Denmark was absolutely arrogant and I am surprised how people in that team can deliver their best. UK staff was very reasonable and supportive, who know how to get best out from a person. One of the worst experience because of interviewer's attitude and on top of that they judge people based on a computerised test Hogan.
