    Worse Company

    Assembly Manager (Current Employee) Auburn, MI

    ProsThere are no Pros to working at this company except to have it on your resume for name recognition. This is a immoral and deceptive company.

    ConsThey do not care about employees. They moved a whole department's work location over 50 mile with no compensation.

    Provides no way to accomplish goals because VP/senior management make goals with out concurrence of employees.

    WCM is a joke as no money can be devoted to it.

    Worse company I've worked for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company ignores illegal and immoral practices. They were reported to the Business Practice Group and they still continue.

    Performance appraisal process is a joke. Employees have little to no control of their outcome. And... the "beauty pageant" rating does not fairly rank employees. It's not objective.

    VPs and senior management make costly mistake and they do not have to account for them. But the employees do.

    The competition will excel as Chrysler continues it's ways.

    Nothing new, just more of the old

    Engineer (Former Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsSome friendly people, perks only for blue badges

    ConsNo personal growth opportunities, small-thinking and micro-managing middle managers who only think in the short-run, poor communication between groups, no clear responsibility on major decisions due to FIAT involvement, cumbersome systems that create roadblocks and then no systems allowing for growth of the organization, inability for programs to be completed due to people not completing their tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate systems and metrics that engineers can work toward, rather than letting the bureaucracy persist. Having the "good ole boys" club will destroy the vision of the company and it will begin to show very soon.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good job if you only care about making a paycheck

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsThe salaries are great, but you are treated like a slave. So if you don't mind selling your soul to the devil for a few coins, then this is the place for you.

    ConsInexperienced Management, no work-life balance, constant fear of downsizing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. They have great ideas for improving many processes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible Management

    Team Leader (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsFlexible work environment

    Nice cafeteria with multiple lunch options.

    ConsHard work does not pay.

    Make you work consistently extra without paying overtime.

    Don't care about employees career preferences. Won't let you move ahead in career.

    Customers, quality, etc. are not the focus, bottom line is.

    Bad management. Decisions take long time. When taken, most management decisions are wrong/bad for both the customers and the employees.

    No clear hierarchy. No consistent management structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees. Take what they want in their career more seriously and don't reward the hard work with a demotion.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
