SR. MGR. QSE (Former Employee) –  Portland, OR19 June 2017
The safety culture at this company is driven by the Operations group. Operations is concerned about just that, Safety needs leadership and at the highest point is lacking.
Pros
Best Field EHS Team in the business

Wind power is NOT clean or green!
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Formerly nice rural area15 June 2017
Destroying landscapes, killing birds & bats and injecting unwanted noise and red lights into rural areas is good for the environment? Vestas is in the business of destroying vistas.
Pros
You can make money chasing government subsidies.
Cons
You sell your soul for a false form of progress, spun as green.

Ok
Operations Support (Former Employee) –  Brighton, CO26 April 2017
This was just an ok place to work. It was more of a between job for me so I don't have much to say negative or positive. The managment was somewhat lacking but again just somewhere inbetween.

Wind Turbine Technician (Current Employee) –  O'Neill, NE23 April 2017
Managers know little to nothing about wind turbine maintenance, troubleshooting, repair etc. The pay is noncompetitive. Technicians at Vestas are among the lowest paid in the industry. Management is inexperienced and weak motivators who pay more attention to budget and production than technicians. By far this is the worst management I have ever worked for.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
In the long run you pay for good benefits.

Interesting Job
Tech II (Current Employee) –  Maine, ME29 March 2017
Overall I like it, however, its difficult to move up because its up to your manager what level tech you can achieve based on what your particular site needs. Once your site is up and running Travel is expected.

Empresa em restruturação com mudanças de CEO e Gerentes
Técnico de O&M II Líder de equipe (Former Employee) –  Brasil27 March 2017
Que aposte no profissional preparando o para mais responsabilidades que venham surgir na Empresa dando assim oportunidade de crescimento bem como apoio e suporte na vida familiar.
Um dia tipico de trabalho: DDS diário, acompanhamento da produtividade, comportamento, ajustes, anomalias e corretivas necessárias.
Aprendizado: Que é preciso estar atento aos erros e falhas para antecipar problemas maiores.
Direção/Gerencia: Comprometimento com os resultados e com os estoques de segurança bem como ferramentas e qualidade do serviço oferecido.
Colegas de trabalho: São as engrenagens que precisam estar alinhadas e lubrificadas para fluir bem evitando troca de peças defeituosas.
Parte mais difícil do trabalho: Deixar de acompanhar os erros e falhas de aviso da maquina acarretando assim em defeitos sucessivos e de grandes proporções sendo assim mais difícil e demorada a conclusão para colocar a maquina em operação.
Parte mais agradável do trabalho: Observar que todos da equipe estão comprometidos com a produtividade das maquinas, agindo de forma antecipada evitando assim outras anomalias, defeitos e quebras de componentes maiores e mais caros.
Pros
bom

No work life balance
Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Mojave, CA11 March 2017
Vestas is a great company to work for but site management is poor and in need of improvement. there is a poor safety culture that cause employees to be placed in situations where they could be harmed due to their lack of knowledge and fear of back lash from management when they voice their opinion about how unsafe a conditions really is. There is no work life balance and we are required to work 65 to 70 hrs a week and if we tell management that we have made plans with our families on the weekend that we are supposed to be scheduled off they say that the only plans we should make are the plans to work.
Pros
Job Security and overall vestas is a great company to work for.
Cons
No work life balance, and poor site management

unstable job
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CO24 February 2017
the benefits and pay are good but advancement isnt guaranteed like they tell you with my experience and from others that ive worked with if your looking to move up in a company this may not be the best place for that regardless of the type of work you put in.The management is very unorganized and your always going on and off with mandatory 6 day weeks and every year they clear house and fire large amounts of employees over minor mistakes
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
bad management, lack of training, no guarantee of advancement
