    Pros

    The salary is reasonable and the benefits package is good.

    Cons

    Bullying is accepted, minority groups not respected. Management is unwilling to stand up to long standing members of staff who treat others poorly. Nepatisum is evident.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more experience from outside the company, stand up to those who treat others poorly. Just because something has been done one way for several years does not mean that it works.

    I have been working at Scania full-time

    Pros

    Flexible and friendly work environment. Possibilities to try new things. Company with great reputation. Global company.

    Cons

    Low salary and non existent salary raise. Salary is determined by years of experience at the company instead of role, skills and results. People move around too much (high employee turnover), hard to find experts due to this.

    Advice to Management

    If you want educated and talented people to stay at the company. Please follow this advice: SALARY is a great way of showing appreciation and getting people to stay for longer. In the long run it might be cheaper as a result of lower hiring costs. Also your competition will stop stealing your employees.
