    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

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Scania full-time (More than 10 years)

    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!

    I worked at Scania full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
