    Stable growing company. Scania has a broad spectra of job positions which are located globally.
    It's also a Company delivering products and services which you could be proud of.

    Scania is a process driven company. You need control and processes for having high quality products but sometimes you wish to have more flexibility when a certain customer needs a more tailormade product

    Pros

    Good office environment and not too much pressure. You can have a good relation between work and family. It is possible to program your vacations and the salary is leveled according to the market.

    Cons

    Benefits besides the salary could be much better. Leadership doesn't inspire us. Sometimes is difficult to understand the criteria behind the promotions. Extension courses like graduate school are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    It is necessary to really listen and to really review what are the satisfaction level of the employees concerning the benefits in order to keep the good people and to attract the young. Missing inspiring leaders!

    Pros

    Soild innovation culture, your voice counts.

    Cons

    More than 70% of Excecutives (Managing Directors, Service Directors, Sales Directors, etc) are only from Sweden.

    Advice to Management

    Scania has global presence but is not a truly global company. Increase Diversity in the management position globally, diversity in key positions at the Head office in Sodertalje, Not only Swedish people, it creates a disadvantage to understand a global market.

    Pros

    Company life follows long-term planning logic which makes it easier to understand what is happening and why (proper application depends greatly on the respective division manager).
    Great benefits, training programs and overall comfortable atmosphere for employees.

    Cons

    Workload gets enormous on a regular basis. Hard to explain it to the management so be prepared for inevitable long hours. Internal bureaucracy has been growing exponentially over the last years, as well as meetings time eating your day away.

    Advice to Management

    Depending on a particlar top manager, people either experience lack of control (resulting in things slowing down) or lack of trust (resulting in extensive reporting).
