I worked at Volvo

Pros

interesting place to work for, people there are very kind and professional, knows their business and is leading the industry

Cons

lack some key variables such as communication between different departments, technology applied to manufacturing is high but low on supporting teams like logistics and transportations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

could be more accessible in terms of communication and providing more cross departments supports, overall a very nice place to work for

    I worked at Volvo

    Pros

    You can certainly advance within the Volvo Group e.g. Volvo Parts, Volvo IT, etc. Non Automotive Purchasing is only one organization within Volvo Group.

    Cons

    USA employees have to follow globabl directives. No advancement opportunities within the local organization. Very high focus on cost savings. No bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees judgement. Global does not always know what local people know.

  2.  

    Good place to work if you enjoy working hard for limited advancement.

    I have been working at Volvo

    Pros

    Strategically the company is run very well financially.. Volvo is methodical in decision making to best balance profit, customer service, growth and employee satisfaction..

    Cons

    Career development is talked about or limited to specific category of people to meet quota requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great hidden talent within the ranks of workers who are held back by lack of developmental policies that would promote growth and career development. All talk but little action.
