    I have been working at Volvo Trucks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, good pay, good work environment, good people generally speaking

    Cons

    It is very easy to get pigion holed and stuck if you have many years in the company. there is a ceiling with no where to go unless someone leaves.
    Anual raises in a job or 2-3% max, so if you have no where to advance it takes a long time for your pay to increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There would be less moving around between departments if those who performed had larger pay raises or bonuses. The only way to gain pay is to transfer to a new job in a new deartment. Or leave the company.
    Also there are too many good old boys in higher "strategy" and consulting positions that are non value added . When you're done, move on. (you know who these are)
    Top management is currently in a "riding out my time" position. ~ downside to that is if they leave they may be replaced by a Swede
