    I worked at Volkswagen

    Pros

    Really good products and people who are completely committed to the brand despite not all being well below the surface. Good pay and conditions but terrible location.

    Cons

    The company desperately wants to grow at all costs ....at all costs! The attitude is that anything is able to be overcome with money and that means all resources are funnelled into paying for discounting cars or pushing more and more equipment into them to make them appealing enough to overcome buyer resistance to issues that are surfacing about quality and reliability. Staff turnover is high in some departments due to very poor management.
