    Pros

    Good benefits package and used to be a company you could be proud to be associated with.

    Cons

    Bad management practices, a slightly paranoid mistrust in its employees. No discernable recognition of the value of its long term employees vast experience and understanding of customers needs. Lastly a definite old school attitude towards personal progression, merit and personal skills are overlooked in favour of who you know. Sycophants will do very well.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise Swedish management to look closely at the management structure and current practices in the UK. Volvo have always produced enviable products but their current reputation within the UK community is very poor mainly due to bad management and organisational attributes.
