Volvo brand is the only thing holding this place up

ProsGreat people and family atmosphere
Low pressure environment
Volvo brand offers great training opportunities and possibly movement within Volvo group.

ConsCompany still trying to dig out from underneath poor strategy decisions from earlier in their life.
Sitting on lots of bad inventory they can't get rid of and need to write down.
They sign bad deals and do not have effective way to measure profitability.
Overall strategy seems to shift every few years.
They suffer from "tenure" syndrome. Some people have been there way too long and are resistant to change, hurting the growth prospects. Hard to let them go since they know the business inside and out.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome serious introspection is required for you to reinvent yourself. A shake up at the top is mandatory. Some of the key players have been there way too long and some fresh blood and thinking is needed. You MUST move to a commission based pay structure for your sales people and key projects must be run by the business folks with their compensation tied to the success of the project. No one owns anything which is why most initiatives fail. Trying to outdo ILS is a fool's errand.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Low pressure Educational as far as the industry is concerned. Decent benefits. Cons: Lack of direction, the company continuously makes promises it cannot keep, and then slaughters its employees in vain attempts to make the impossible reality. … Advice to Senior Management: Keep it simple, stop coming up with ill researched ideas. Focus on the basic business model of distributing surplus… More
