    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Uber modern offices with electric desks, state-of-the-art equipment, a glass-enclosed coffee-break room with a view and great coffee! The product is like building blocks, the processes are what boggles the mind. Great small teams that are highly collaborative with constant and consistent learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Basically the same as any subsidiary to a multinational--micromanaging from afar; excessive required reporting on no-change situations and the never-ending, double-digit body count conference call meetings. With all the glass walls and open office plan, quiet space is at a premium and needs to be respected more.
