    I have been working at Volvo Car USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employment sales pitch was really positive!

    Cons

    Everything in the employment sales pitch was a lie! People with no prior leadership experience have been promoted to managerial level. Problems take months to get fixed, if ever. Management is not willing to take responsibility for the problems and stick their neck out to make advancements. "That's not my problem/responsibility" is a culture. Managers don't listen to employees despite one of Volvo's values being 'Utilizing the expertise of the workforce". Employee morale is so low it is not uncommon for more than one employee to just walk out on any given day. We are so under-staffed now that the remaining employees are being driven into the ground!

    Pros

    Beautiful plant and the area is very scenic

    Cons

    Poorly managed and treat employees with disdain and pettiness. They try and pitch themselves as environmentally friendly and forward thinking yet are owned by Chinese company,the world’s largest polluter and use bully tactics to manage people. Quality of car is terrible. The only thing worse is quality of upper management.
