    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    FCA has evolved into an amazing company that has potential for advancement and truly takes care of its employees. The company as a whole has innovative and interesting products in market as well as many years to come with future products.

    Cons

    Like many large global companies it is easy to get lost in the mix and easily forgotten. Get too comfortable in a position and competition is lacking as there are so many layers and divisions globally. Not to much to write in this section as at the end of the day every opportunity is for you/I to create not the company we work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop great cars that people want to buy and buy again.

    Pros

    Great mix of senior/experienced, mid-level and young workforce - opportunities to innovate and develop cool things

    Cons

    Things can be slow sometimes when seeking approvals, working through the management chain. Lack of communication between major teams can be a roadblock, but all it needs is some extra effort to maintain communication and work-flow.

    Advice to Management

    Actively work on retaining employees - flexible working hours and telecommuting options can be expanded to a lot of the sub-organizations depending on the nature of work expected.

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My first internship experience, and hit the jackpot! Worked directly under head of brand communications, providing great insight to not only marketing and communications, but exposure to operations, sales, and overall brand team.

    Cons

    Within the company itself, for marketing, there is not a leadership or rotational program. You could essentially end up in a role and stay in the position for multiple years without being able to get yourself exposure to other roles.

    Advice to Management

    More employee engagement and giving back to employees, leadership program

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good to learn how the auto industry operates.

    Cons

    Miscommunication between departments. Hourly rate as a contract isn't competitive compared to GM and Ford. Looks like people are in roles that they shouldn't be in, especially managerial roles. Contract engineers do not get paid during the 2 weeks that FCA is closed during the christmas season, unlike direct employees.

    Pros

    Exiting watching the company pull itself out of bankruptcy and start showing signs of success. Lots of opportunity to learn about activities involved in merging two companies together.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging which is no different than any other automotive OEM.

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as an intern

    Pros

    Had plenty of work with a clearly established set of goals for the internship. Everyone was very helpful in answering any questions and taking me out to visit suppliers with them. Travelled a lot.

    Cons

    Can't think of any glaring cons, except it simply isn't a job I'd be interested in long term.
