Addicted to extreme management science - totally inappropriate and caused the company to (effectively) go bust.
Research Fellow (Former Employee) –  Isle of Wight3 November 2019
Work involved forgetting your expertise and talent and concentrate on stupid management drivel Including; filling out endless competency matrices (the last one was 124 elements long); watching numerous company training videos none of which were appropriate or useful etc etc and attending many other brainwashing exercises.

Awesome company
Resource Technician (Current Employee) –  All Over13 August 2018
As a travelling technician, the work is there. Depending on what projects you do, unlimited overtime it seems. Vestas has amazing benefits including super good insurance options, 401k with matching and immediate vesting, and amazing opportunity to accrue PTO(240hrs per year). The hourly pay leaves something to be desired, but with overtime and per diem, you can make a ton of money. The downside is trying to have a life outside of work. The only reason I am looking to leave Vestas is due to the want to settle down and start a family. Can't do that if you're never home.
Pros
Hotels paid for, work vehicle, fuel card, company provided work clothes and ppe, airfare for pto, awesome training, variety of work tasks
Cons
absolutely no work/life balance if you are travelling, getting trained/assigned more work without proper compensation

Great Place to work with a clear and ethical goal
Research technical lead (Former Employee) –  blades, UK22 January 2017
Driven and exciting place to work, one of the best I have ever worked within. The ethos of the organisation is to work towards a greener environment in everything they do. Excellent attention to detail regarding H&S. Would never have left if it were not for the stability of the sector leading to my redundancy
Pros
Direction and drive - other staff
Cons
job security - part of the secort stability

Micro Management, Track you at all times
previous Employee (Former Employee) –  Scotland8 November 2015
If your face fits and you have friends in high places your work life will be better, if not expect to work more hours to pick up their slack. no work life balance as they do not care about your family time. expect to work 14 hour days. Safety goes out the window when they need you to do something. Wind Farm contracts are too short so no job security. Always penny pinching and monitoring your movements from when you start until you finish. cross check all your times against the tracker. Keep adding more work onto your already busy day/week. micro management,
Pros
None
Cons
Monitoring your movements from start to finish, micro management, cross checking times, more and more work load put onto the technician
