    Competitive salary, with good health and dental plans. Very good environment that you can make connections and find people specialized in any subject.

    Pros

    1) CEO is doing a great job 2) changes are in the works but it's like turning the Titanic...takes time 3) good pay and benefits 4) global auto industry is very interesting 5) injection of new blood and innovation 6) opportunities to change roles

    Cons

    1) some areas are still focused on the tactical vs. strategic 2) still lots of old school mentality and entitlement "I've been here 30 years and should be promoted" 3) lack of financial accountability at the leadership level 4) workforce complacency 5) highly competitive industry

    Advice to Management

    Goals should be measurable and tied to financial outcomes. Leadership needs to be more strategic-thinkers than tactical and data driven.
