    I have been working at Volvo Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company health care and ETO (earned time off) benefits are phenomenal! The company believes in the quality of life for its employees and gives you opportunities to earn rewards (ex. gift cards) through free health screenings.

    Cons

    You very well may have a slow beginning in terms of work assignments. Often times I would feel as though I was not contributing very much to my team, but it was there method of assisting with my cultural transition into the company.

    Advice to Management

    Training of new employees could be a bit better. The company devotes a large amount of time in individuals learning "The Volvo Way" and often times you may feel as though you could be doing a lot more with assignments.

    Pros

    Great people and benefits. Challenging work environment with great project opportunities. A very nice starting point for entry level Information technology individuals

    Cons

    Minimal communication between departments. As an IT specialist, it was challenging to support cross functional applications that affected multiple departments. That required different browsers, java..etc..etc ..etc

    Advice to Management

    Enforce more communication...Allow more time in developing entry level employees for greater roles to better benefit the company. It is rare full time individuals leave Volvo...invest in them as they have in the company

    Pros

    Top Benefits in terms of health insurance, vacation time, and maintaining a work life balance with a family to succeed.

    Cons

    Slower at making decisions due to being a consensus culture. You must be patient in order to get the full picture as to what it will take to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting in your employees and tap in to the culture of each individual site as the diversity makes the company strong. Keep the company as a leader in innovative technology.
