    I worked at Volkswagen full-time

    Pros

    One of the best automotive industries with very high production figures. High tech equipment and a lot to learn. Especially about process design and optimization.

    Cons

    The Volkswagen India plant is although a high tech plant but it still is a manual plant and does not have the latest technology in use for production.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in new equipment will greatly boost production figures. Developing products according to the market you are targetting will go a long way in increasing the brand value.

    I have been working at Volkswagen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Volkswagen pays very well and the bonus is pretty awesome. My management is very good, but is the rarity within the organization. Volkswagen offers many training and development opportunities.

    Cons

    The culture is very hierarchal and the management does not plan strategically at all. We have foreign managers in every two to three years, so there is no consistency or organizational investment. They are usually out for themselves and their next promotion. Also, the morale is poor because our hourly employees work a ton of overtime. Also, it is a bus driver environment, where folks will run you over and back the bus up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop band-aiding issues and figure out the root cause. At executive level management--Let an American lead the company and give them freedom. Also, appreciate innovative ideas--and stop making last minute decisions. Management needs to encourage others to take accountability and ownership of mistakes. Also, be open to change.
