What is it like to work at Saab?

It is very inspiring, full of innovative and friendly people and truly a company with cutting-edge technology. One can also tell that Saab as a company appreciates its employees and want to retain them within the company. For example, it is possible to try various professional fields. I have already met many colleagues who started in one field and now work in a completely different field, which is possible and even promoted at Saab if you are interested.
