    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)

It provides you great work-life balance as well.

    Cons

    1. You will have to find opportunities yourself to progress here and it depends on how well you are able to maintain relations with people here. 2. Your hike doesn't much depend on your performance.You need to be tough during your salary revisions to get a good hike here. 3.
