    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Volvo Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Structured processes, hard to get sacked regardless how little you do

    Cons

    Career progression, age gap in the workforce, time will take you up the chain not competence or training, twisted management values

    Advice to Management

    Times have changed, young people with real talent want to be promoted to do a better job than they’re current old superiors (not just direct manager)

    Pros

    Excellent work culture. Very professional work place. Supportive colleagues who tend to become friends rather than remain colleagues.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit on the lower side. So it creates a feeling that the value we add to our jobs it's not fully recognised by the management. Can get tad bit frustrating...

    Advice to Management

    Got an excellent management team, they have a very strong vision and are very clear about where they intend to take the organisation. Plans drawn out are very realistic and hence very achievable...
