    Pros

    Awesome work environment. Cool fun projects and the chance to with for the largest Automotive manufacture in the world. The Erl had about 200 or so employees and had the feel of a small tech company with tht resources of VW.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a pain to have to communicate with Germany to get information on the cars or have to translate German text when I don't speak German

    Pros

    Great bennefits and people to work with. Job is demanding but rewarding.

    Changes cone quickly, hard to stay ahead. People are great but workforce needs better training. Micromananged quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Back off just s bit to let your team breathe. Trust what they have been trained. Coach rather than dictate.

    Pros

    Great benefits, awesome cars, high performance is rewarded. Each person can make a real impact. Many people who left for other opportunities came back to VWGoA because it is just such a great company. I left for personal reasons but really wish I still worked there. Best company ever!
