    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Volvo Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits were good but slowly they have been decreasing them. There will always be something on fire that day to keep you busy. This is a good place to start or end your career as there's zero growth opportunities (can't even get HR or supervisors to lay out a roadmap to promotions) but you will be exposed to a lot of by the nature of how lean the company chooses to be.

    Cons

    All the true engineering is done overseas. In the US as an engineer you will perform the test, put the values in the engine or test results. You may be one of the lucky ones to evaluate hardware Sweden has already decided upon. You will be heavily reliant on the UAW and your performance evals will be heavily dependent on them performing their work. There is zero, ZERO upward mobility here. You can not even get HR or management to lay out a roadmap. They reduced the number of levels from 7 to 4 . So your entire career you can expect only 4 promotions. They re-organize every year which just means you get yet another boss to report to. In 4 years this company re-organized 4 times and each time I gained another boss to report to but kept all the old ones.
