    Pros

    Big company, lots to learn. Heavy process oriented. Experience adds value to your resume, maybe.

    Cons

    Personal growth is definitely one. Company culture needs to change, although will be painful and long-lasting. No free lunch. Limited free beverages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Software is an important part of the product. Now the company is experiencing difficulties because of bad software product management.

    Pros

    Managers are very understanding, And Will work with You if You Have a schedule conflict. Pay was Good, and it was a Good job until I got Laid Off due to recession.

    Cons

    Some of the Old employees act with prejudice against employees that have a different point of view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to schedule some Diversity Training, since the Owners are from Portugal. Comments about the way they spoke with a strong accent was brought up by the "old company" kept employees, and the good old boys resent the change.

    I worked at Volvo Construction Equipment as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    VCE provided a huge amount of knowledge to its interns, they really showed that they cared about helping you learn the industry and better yourself as an employee.
    My team was all young people fresh out of college, we did team bonding events every month that ranged from dealer and port visits to cook outs and lazer tag.
    Everyone at VCE took the time to help you through your problems, and everyone was eager to pass along their knowledge.

    Cons

    Sales and marketing can be demanding sometimes, you will have to keep on top of your game if you want to succeed
