    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Volvo Cars full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and a good name.

    Cons

    Discrimination on many bases. Some managers don't have an interest in employees progress/development. Lots of talking and promising (oral, avoiding any form of writing) and nothing would happen. Micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Leave their ivory tower and try to open their eyes and take actions other than running away from reality. Treat all employees the same way, without discrimination based on anything.

    Pros

    Good people trying to do the best thing locally

    Cons

    Completely hopeless senior Swedish leadership team. Still reaping the benefits of Stefan Jacoby's past decisions and vision. No new ones of any substance since he unfortunately went.

    Advice to Management

    There are other countries & cultures outside of Sweden. Stick to design & let the markets sell the product.
