Ade Adekanye: “The VDub Experience” – Management Styles

One of the major differences between Volkswagen Group of America and other companies I’ve worked with in the past is the management style and the approach to work.

The managers I’ve met are pretty consistent across the board. On the style pipeline, they are open to suggestions, consider all ideas and inspire employees to do their best. As far as the work pipeline is concerned, you are generally allowed to independently approach projects with manager oversight. The last thing any employee wants is a work scenario that excludes critical thought. At Volkswagen Group of America you’re presented with projects and opportunities where you’re expected to brainstorm your ideas and implement creativity.

That’s what I signed up for and that’s exactly what my experience has been so far.

I am not sure who this is going two but it is the only site i found to write.My wife and i bought a 2009 Eos brand new 2009.We loved the car and would have kept it longer if it not for Quirk VW in Manchester N.H.We brought it in for service and felt we were not getting the service we deserved.After several visits i took the car to my own mechanic to check things out.After putting it up on the lift we discovered at 22000 miles it had never been lubed and the oil change was questionable.Also there are i believe eight bolts that hold a plate on under the engine only three were put back.So we sold never to own a vw again.
