    I have been working at Volkswagen Group of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for anyone that has ambition. Hard work, focus, and passion for detail really pays off.

    Cons

    Some knee jerk reactions in management and lack of communication can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    This page should be run by a strong leader that requires those under him/her to do things the way they have laid out. There are too many people with different methods. And everyone tries thing their own way. Diversity is good but someone needs to be the decision maker and hold everyone to it. This needs to happen from CEO down.

    Pros

    Great company with some good perks. Company car program is unmatched in the industry.

    Cons

    The diesel issue has jaded a lot of people, and it isn't as prideful to say you work there anymore.

    I have been working at Volkswagen Group of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive company when it comes to work life balance. I've never felt pressured to come in when sick, or made to feel guilty when a child is sick. Bosses have been always super supportive and allowed the group to have freedom, so long as we continue to show that we deserve it through our consistently positive work product.

    Cons

    It's just an unstable environment. Every time you think the worst is finally over...something else rears its ugly head. I feel like I am caught in a web of lies (thank you global headquarters :P ) and I am having a harder and harder time telling people truthfully where I work.

    Hours are very tiresome. No work/home blance
