    Former Employee - Portal Developer in Södertälje (Sweden)

    I worked at Scania as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Scania takes great care in creating a working environment that is efficient, respectful and sustainable. The company listens to everyone and takes every opportunity to improve its business. At the same time, Scania invests in people, with a long term vision.

    Cons

    The location is a bit far from Stockholm and is better for people living in the south part of Stockholm.
    The small turnover is a positive sign but can make it difficult for new comers to bring new ways of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the IT department, a great job is done by everyone, but experts are taking too much place in the decision process.
