      Pros

      Most managers will let an employee explore other areas of the company as long as their work is being completed well. This enables employees to grow and develop new skills.

      Cons

      Working long hours is often expected. People looking for a strong work-life balance and the concept of a 40-hour work week are less likely to be successful in their career at VWGoA.

      Pros

      The benefits and compensation are good.

      Cons

      It can be a bit of a culture shock if you are used to working for an American company. Germans that are assigned to the USA typically work long hours as they are trying to climb the ladder.
