    I worked at Volvo Construction Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and open work environment with colleagues.
    Opportunities to get international experience.
    Culturally very diverse.

    Cons

    Directors and up are very political.
    Marketing and Sales divisions are weak and unable to grasp volumes.
    Pay is under industry standard.
    Chambersburg is where most employees live, is dull too.
    Shippensburg organization is running very thin after 3 layoffs. 50+hr work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your engineers, keep your noses out. Engineering in this company know what they are doing and have a good business mindset, management keep your noses out and see your engineering turn the business around.
