Pros: over the past 4 years and 8 months they have systematically removed, all of the pros of working there.
Cons: being left stranded four times in three different states, friends of management gaining and maintaining employment, regardless of qualifications or performance of duties, reliance on a complicated network of security measures, making it impossible to perform duties when ideal conditions are not present.
As a result of the Production Tax credit not getting signed in a timely manner due to elections, Siemens wind energy was forced into laying off huge numbers because there were no contracts for wind turbine farms for 2013 in the U.S. They offered an attractive layoff package. However, I was terminated instead of being laid off so they could avoid offering – more... me what I should have had coming as well as unemployment. I had successfully completed my last project and was stranded in Iowa where they had put me with no transportation, no internet, and limited phone service. I had to take my computer into town 25 minutes away to check my e-mail and I did so every chance I got every few days. They terminated me for "no call/ no show" even though I was keeping up with my e-mails at a reasonable level. Based on what I had seen from management over the past 4 years and 8 months I can't honestly say I was surprised. Although the company is large and may have a very sturdy foundation, the wind division is a confused, unorganized quagmire. – less
