    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    Pros

    great staff, trying their best to do a great job under difficult conditions. Interesting industry, good L&D opportunities

    Cons

    A lot of workforce changes took place during my time and was poorly management, workforce was cut by 30% and the same time people were leaving in their droves of their own accord. Very poor at recording processes. Poor rates low and no pay increases

    Advice to Management

    Look after your loyal, hardworking staff as they are the life blood of the organisation. Management need better training on how to deal with issues in times of unrest
