    I have been working at Volkswagen Group Canada full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people, amazing products and great dealer network. Management says they care and listen and want you to succeed in your career and in your position Have lots of great events to attend Town hall meetings are good for understanding the bigger picture

    Cons

    Lots of 'boys clubs' in the organization Much of the review process is smoke and mirrors and nothing ever comes out of it Lost much of the personal touches when company was smaller Bonus calculations are a big mystery Many of the office staff don't understand view of the dealers and think that corporate is always right

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees and help them out more Be more transparent - the more that everyone knows, the better off we will be Different business units operate in silos, try to break those down more Some managers are way too over worked and they need help too Try to find solutions instead of just finger pointing

    I worked at Volkswagen Group Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits with a great discount on cars. Lots of opportunities to learn. Enough budget to do produce great work.

    Cons

    Toxic environment. It's a flat organization so there are little opportunities for advancement which promotes unhealthy competition. People have been there for years and plan to stay until retirement (and it shows). Very demanding goals which makes the environment even more hostile. Lots of egos and personalities. Lots of politics inside the office and a brutal aggressive environment with dealers. (not every car company...

    Advice to Management

    Promote decency and respect for one. Be intolerant of bad attitudes and behaviors. That's a minimum.

    Pros

    Engaged management, they listen to employees and dealers.

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better and it would be nice if bonuses were paid quarterly and you knew what you were going to get.

      I have been working at Volkswagen Group Canada full-time

      Pros

      Excellent benefits - company lease program, company car (for certain positions), home office (certain positions), company expense account, great RRSP and savings programs. Excellent colleagues and collaboration, management truly engaged and cares about employee feedback and ideas. Competitive base pay / salary

      Cons

      Could have better bonuses or incentive based pay. Don't know how bonus is really calculated (not even my boss) as only 50% of it is based on your work.

      Advice to Management

      More transparency and improve opportunities for 'pay for performance'

      I worked at Volkswagen Group Canada full-time

      Pros

      VGCA is a great automotive company to work for; their car program is fanastic. All other benefits are par. Rough patch during the diesel thing, but still managed to keep employees happy and engaged.

      Cons

      Very little room for movement. Small Canadian part of a much larger global company

      Advice to Management

      Keep executive level roles open for Canadians - limit the amount of EX-pat management.
