I have been working at ASSA ABLOY full-time (More than a year)
I work alongside the development team on a SaaS program. This environment is not only encouraging and supportive, I find it to be one of the few development teams that I've worked with that are incredibly self-motivated and hold themselves to a higher standard with each release. I've worked on major releases with the team, and have been impressed with the level or professionalism and expertise. The team really tries to look at everyone - internal or external - as customers, and endeavors to support that.
There's a great atmosphere with this team. A good work-life balance and active lifestyle is highly encouraged by senior management, as they view this to be fundamental to day-to-day experiences & stress management. It's a flexible office environment.
The highlight of working with this team is that management is open to suggestions for any area of improvement, so if someone is looking to forge a path within a great company, it could definitely be found here. It's ultimately up to each employee to take senior management feedback during reviews and be transparent & openly discuss a desired career path.
It's a large global organization, and without proper management, guidance and communication, it could be easy to feel like you get lost within the organization.
Advice to Management
As large as the organization is, it's possible to feel a little lost, especially for new employees. It's helpful for new employees to be exposed to the vast opportunities and resources available early on, and even beyond the initial start.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ASSA ABLOY in June 2014.
Applied though Linked-In recruiter. Interview process from start of application to interview was 20days. Took another 3weeks without a response from them on whether moving forward. I made their decision easy by removing myself from further consideration. If a company cannot give a response to a potential employee, I wonder how responsive is management to answer real hard questions?!
