How is it to work in Saab?
I haven't worked for another company, so I don't have anything else to compare with, even so, I do enjoy working here. I feel that my co-workers are very keen to help and that there are no stupid questions.
Since my first day, I feel that I have been able to do what I have wanted; going to courses I find interesting, focusing on some task or getting new roles. Saab does not stop you from going in whatever direction you want to go to.
We do a lot of different tasks which brings variation to our job. It is hard to describe what exactly we do because it varies all the time but that means it never gets boring and you are always learning new things.
We have some organisations within Saab so you can connect with other people from other sections. For example, there is an organisation for women and another for young people.
What is especially fun with your work?
For me is that I have been able to follow the product from start to end. From an idea to a finished function. It takes time and it is difficult at first, but you learn a lot and you meet all types of people on the way. It is also incredible fun to test the function you have been developing in the simulator.
Is there something you would like to tell to someone who does not have any experiences with Saab?
I was new in Linköping when I started working here. As I said before, Saab has an organisation for younger people that organizes different activities. Thanks to that I manage to connect with new people and find new friends. So if you also come from another city and fear that you won't know anyone, don't worry! You will have a chance here at Saab too.
What do you think about the team you work with?
I work in several teams and we all have a lot of fun together. We meet on After Works and do different things, for example we went golfing, flying and after summer we are going sailing.
