    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company culture, great benefits, and job security. There's freedom to try new things, and opportunities to grow professionally. This is a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so sometimes things move slowly. The work load can be heavy at times, but supervisors are realistic and supportive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. More leadership development within the company would be one area to improve.

    Best experience for me - not for everybody

    Former Employee - Intern/Co-op in Seneca, SC
    Former Employee - Intern/Co-op in Seneca, SC

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    In my department, I could not have had a better experience. I was given projects that a full-time engineer would take on - an unmatched level of responsibility for an intern at any company.
    7-3:30 shift gives you the afternoon.
    Every employee reaches out to offer help and wishes you luck at the end of your rotation
    Pay for an intern is good, not great.
    Every full-time employee feels as though they are well-paid

    Cons

    No structured intern/co-op program so each person has a different experience. Other interns had little to no responsibility and took almost nothing from their experience. It depends a lot on who your manager is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Focused on the business and delivering results. They handle performance problems swiftly and fairly. Lots of opportunities for growth and travel. People are top notch and great to work with.

    Cons

    Automotive industry is fast paced and not for the weak. This is not a laid back place to work and you are at the mercy of production schedules and project planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work on delivering returns, manage what can at times be a political environment.

    Best Place I've Worked At So Far!

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Electrical Controls Engineer in Seneca, SC
    Current Employee - Electrical Controls Engineer in Seneca, SC

    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The guys (Chuck and Mike) I work with in my division in the department I work for are so great! My boss is even awesome! I have never had a boss like Mark Faris.
    The pay is very generous for a electrical/controls engineer with 2.5 years of experience.
    The benefits package is very competitive as well....the best I've had so far.
    Bonus is guaranteed.
    I can go to any training classes I want to go to that will help me in my career.

    Cons

    I think there should be more structure in how people request work to be done with the electrical/controls side of projects. Just coming up and asking us to do some programming, etc should be eliminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no problem with the management, but I do think management should consider having a structured system for requesting controls work done.

    I worked at BorgWarner as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Great pay scale
    -Responsible for your own projects with as much or as little guidance wanted
    -Flexible with summer schedules
    -Cutting edge automotive technologies facility

    Cons

    -I couldn't return due to the automotive industry taking a downturn, so workload/work availability all follow the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it's hard to jump through all the hoops in a large company, so try to make those jumps smaller and fewer in number.
