    A tip: If you want to learn something you have to show you are interested and insist that they assign you appropriate tasks. Otherwise, you usually waste your time as an intern there. Show them you are serious and want to learn.

    I have been working at Volkswagen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Excellent salary - Gigantic company with lots of international opportunities - Good for petrol heads and traditional engineering

    Cons

    - Soooooo slow (partly due to labor union) - Everything is politics - No transparency in many things - Hard to climb the ranks, lot of old managers - Toxic culture with a lot of silos

    Advice to Management

    - Fire at least 10% of management, top managers below board level should only have limited contracts for 5 years - Get middle management to give the big picture to employees - Give consequences for not reaching targets - Don't get to influenced by labor union (it is a mafia)
