    Pros

    Great benefits, nice bonus, vacation, perks (Holiday Party, picnic, etc).
    Challenging work if you like deadlines.

    Cons

    IT is very, very silo-ed. Management solutions are lip service.
    Too many Peter-principle managers. Very little accountability.
    Project management driven only by dates will lead to crap code; everyone knows that.
    Management listens but they don't act.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get connected with the worker bees!
    Actually listen to the technical people.
    Get serious about being a leading technology shop instead of just pretending.

    Good company, but High Political landscape

    Current Employee - Enterprise Architect in Libertyville, IL

    I have been working at VW Credit full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good people with good skill sets. Good benefits.

    Cons

    I would agree with the others that this landscape is Highly Political. Technical departments are very, very Tribal. Extremely hard to get people to work together. Management does nothing to stop this and many times encourages it. Also, lack of any Documentation or want to document, i.e. everything is in peoples heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May need to Outsource Technical management as a method to break Tribal logjam in people working together?

    - IT Management always pushing individuals to learn and be the best they can be in their area of expertise, so training is not lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supply individuals with a good career path, driven by HR, and also the steps and experience required to get there (how to).

    I worked at VW Credit full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits with good people, they started me out with 3 weeks vacation and I stayed for just over ten years. Great 401k as well. Many advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Compliance is a concern, many advancements are based solely on having a degree, terminated employees not allowed to say goodbye

    I have been working at VW Credit full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    As employees we are fairly treated, it's a fun environment,and a great place to work for. The compensation is good for what you do.

    Cons

    The downsides are the lack of oversight of the management. If you have a personality conflict with a manager it's very difficult to over come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not every position for advancement needs to have a college degree and the over reliance on such means that sometimes a good fit for a position is passed over for an adequate fit.

    Pros

    Company being profitable overall

    Unpleasant work environment with lots of dirty and butt-kissing politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break silos and start communicating with all levels of employees/consultants.
    Highlight and acknowledge the people who are hard working and willing to take responsibility
    Reward people based on their skill set and results
