Company Culture

The Volvo Way is a very good philosophy but may not always be implemented to its greatest benefit.

Support from management

I worked there for 6 years and had 7 immediate managers. One bad manager can ruin the whole experience. The more managers you have the better the odds of getting a bad one.

Internal Communication

The company has informational meetings at all levels often.

Gender Equality

There are many more male managers than female. Female managers tend to be in HR rather than technical although there are a few.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older also usually means higher paid. If/when payroll needs to be trimmed, dropping older employees is more effective and potentially less disruptive. when hours and warm bodies count to get the work done.

Office / Work Environment

They are actively upgrading their facilities.

Work-Life Balance

When things get backed up, mandatory, often unpaid, overtime can be implemented

Job Security

Many people are contractors, interns and coops. Sometimes people seem to disappear because they are let go with no notice.

Handicapped Accessibility

The facility is 50+ years old. They are in the process of upgrading. They have elevators but few ramps. The facility is largely two floors.

Workplace Safety

Quite safety conscious.

Inclusive / Diverse

This was the most international company I have ever worked for. There are many women there but the African American representation is sparse.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Expats should be management consultants/advisers, not managers. Management musical chairs is not conducive to productivity.

What I like about the company

Operational Development is a very good concept and has great potential.

What I dislike about the company

They bring expats in from Europe that stay for from 2 to 5 years. Many tend to be managers which disrupts the work expectations and evaluations.
