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

    Pros

    VW builds really great vehicles.

    Cons

    Poor management up top, lack of resources to be successful in a role, and huge pay deficit compared to other OEMs.

    Advice to Management

    Step down and let the US market function like other OEMs. Stop the lying and unethical behavior associated with the delicately problem.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pleasant coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Mid and lower level employees have been punished or let go due to high-level VW decisions like the diesel scandal. I left after the revelations of the diesel scandal broke because I did not want to work at a firm that intentionally lied to consumers and regulators for years. VW had the arrogance to use the slogan 'German Engineering' -- as if that meant something -- when in reality the engineering teams were cheating on emissions because they could not engineer better diesels.

    Advice to Management

    Take full responsibility for 'Dieselgate' and don't take it out on your thousands of mid- and lower-level employees

    Pros

    I guess there are no pros besides them providing food for breakfast and lunch

    Cons

    Third class management
    No strong will in the management to even deal with vendors
    PMs are like taunting machine
    Now they are even increasing the goal %age to 110.
    Please please never join this company.
    No faith in resource, they always think that resource is wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Please atleast have some courage to deal with vendors.
    Stop being a taunting machine.
    Have faith in your resources.
