    Pros

    Fast paced entrepreneurial culture. Exciting industry prospects. Opportunity to get involved in many interesting projects. Great mission.

    Cons

    Lack of process driven mindset. So even though people are striving to serve customers they too often do not complete projects properly creating inefficient operations on a continuous basis.

    Advice to Management

    Pace change, gel all the business unit mentalities into a distinct 'one Vestas' mentality. Reduce politics, create more structures and processes.
