    Pros

    People are awesome. Company cares about all the right things...safety, quality, and the environment. Always focused on people and how to make life better for our customers.

    Cons

    Greenfield start-up is stressful. Will demand much from the team and not everything is clearly prepared and ready for deployment in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Help us better understand the Volvo culture but allow us to Americanize our approach. Some policies will require adjustment. Be flexible and empowering.
