Pros

Great place if you are a technically minded person. Challenges abound so you most likely will not get bored here. Use some of the newest engineering design and testing technologies.

Cons

Sometimes it's hard to tell where the company is headed, especially in these times. The truck market is very cyclical, so you can expect business to be up and down.

Advice to Management

Encourage the higher engineers to take the time and train/assist more junior engineers. Offer better training or else you will have retiring engineers who haven't bothered to train the younger ones.

    "Volvo Trucks - Great Concept, Disappointing Execution"

    Pros

    The Volvo Way is a proud concept which, when executed properly, would make Volvo a top company to work for. The benefits package is excellent, though impacted by recent economics. Expatriate opportunities exist for those in lower management and below. The complexity and visibility of the products makes the work very interesting.

    Cons

    Volvo top management has a very narrow world view focused on Sweden. Ideas inconsistent with this world view are actively discouraged even when consistent with regional market requirements. As a result, many strategic opportunities are missed and employees with broader world views and creative approaches find the environment frustrating. Volvo has actively developed a bureaucracy which makes rapid action and decision making difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Volvo provides good benefits and could be an exceptional work place if the executive management team would life up to "The Volvo Way" and support creative approaches to business strategy -- particularly when dealing with international markets.

    Stop making so many changes in the organization.
