    I worked at Volvo Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good company with great products, and a positive, friendly work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Slow in taking decisions; decisions are too often made by management in a "politically correct " way in an attempt to please Executives, rather than based on sharp business sense.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to others' idea and constructive criticism; select leaders for their practical knowledge of the field they work on rather than their ability to present elegant, yet unworkable plans with no substance.

    Pros

    Volvo is a good and recognized brand, multicultural, good products, good benefits, life-balance, nice people, good processes. It is a great experiência.

    Cons

    Last 2 years were no good. No travels, no education, no promotion. Unclear the criteria for growing. Managers prefer promoting other managers instead promoting new good people. They are outsourcing the IT... For who are from IT...unfortunately is time to leave...

    Advice to Management

    Take a look in the new talents... You choose always the same. ..

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

    Pros

    Competitive vacation time and compensation

    Cons

    Unfortunately, like any other workplace, a horrible boss makes for a horrible working environment. I was especially disappointed in the inept HR department, who received numerous serious complaints regarding the behavior of my boss over the years and did absolutely nothing about it. Talented employees just continued to leave. I've heard stories from people in other departments - it's a great place to work if your department is well-run. My advice to jobseekers is this - if you get a funny feeling during your interview that something is "off", it probably is. Please don't let the vacation time and salary sway you. It's not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    If great employees keep leaving a department, something is wrong. Take the complaints you get about certain managers seriously, and do something about it.
