    Pros

    Good salary, good payment

    Company car program

    A lot of benefits such as bonus and insurances

    Company restaurant with cheap food

    Nice cars

    Cons

    It is never enough, if you work hard, they want you to work harder

    Volvo gent should be more important than your private life

    Bad communication

    Work pressure to high

    Pretend to be a good employer but only cares about making cars and profit

    Benefits of the company are only adapted for the people Who are making the rules instead of those Who are making the cars

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for the People Who work for the company

    Innovative and caring corporation with great products. Volvo is well equiped to handle the changing environment and new customer demands. A lot of creative persons.

    I worked at Volvo Car Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A Company in ramp-up phase with a lot of exiting products ahead. Building up capabilities for autonomous drive and e-commerce.

    Cons

    Not yet a global company. Still most employees work in either China or Sweden. Needs to work on more female leaders and a better international balance of management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to give credit to those who work with great loyalty to construct and produce these beautiful cars.
