I worked at Volvo Trucks

Pros

Very stable job, and can be easy to grow. Relatively easy with time. Good benefits if you become a full time employee, and good vacations

Cons

Could be very boring. The location, in my perspective is terrible. Very boring town, and the communication is not great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get an MBA, or work there for 5 or 6 years plus. Take on many project leader roles, and learn about the products.
