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.
