    I have been working at Volkswagen full-time

    Pros

    The people that work here are great, and it is probably one of the lower stress and time commitment jobs in SV.

    Cons

    Large company processes and politics from Germany. This bogs the ERL of VW down and prevents us from being competitive in an extremely competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management can provide better direction and do some of the creating and idea generation themselves.
