    I have been working at Volvo Car USA full-time

    Pros

    Open culture. Individuals have great exposure to trending technologies. Working with Startups Some very kind people.

    Cons

    Everybody is focused on pleasing their immediate manager. Bias management. Lack of focus, goal & long term vision. Low productivity.

    Recognize talent and provide opportunities based on experience, skills & abilities. Have local goals aligned with global vision. Develop leadership skills & scrap the 100 year mentality. With tools, exposure & location, this can truly be the best place to work for individuals & great success for Volvo.
