Approves of CEO

Pros

I really like the way Volvo executed projects. There was always an avenue to approach upper management. I liked the way they handled difficult situations.

Cons

Volvo bought out Mack Trucks Inc. Therefore I had two headquarters to report and recieve requests. There seemed to be an internal competition as to who knew the best way. I was caught in the middle of the conflict.

Advice to Management

The mainframe systems at my location were being phased out. I did not see any opportunity for the future. I really liked Volvo alot, but there should have been an avenue for me to pursue with them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    no pressure at work and decent amount of allowed time off.
    you can keep your job without doing much work.

    Cons

    No room to advance and grow and strict one-way communication from the management.
    'Global' way is Swedish way and no real clear goal or vision other than big talks from the management.

    Advice to Management

    please value regional (non-EU) employees, and senior regional management should focus more on regional growth and should listen to the voices from regional folks.
