    Pros

    Lots of individual decision making, lots of responsibility and chances to make decisions.

    Cons

    Large office, no much chance for promotion, very manufacturing orientated workplace. Mid level management doesn't do much, more babysitting than actually responsibility, which is passed onto lower level associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentives, more reason to do a "better" job, not promoted because of how long you've sat in chair rather how much you've accomplished.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable job
    Decent benefits
    Good vacation policy

    Cons

    Rampant confusion and mismanagement at department levels
    Inconsistent application of policies, many decisions bases on hidden favoritism
    No rules, only "guidelines"
    Everything subject to business needs clause
    The motto seems to be "Ignorance is bliss and the truth is not welcome"
    People live in fear of failure more than anticipation of success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much time spent with form instead of function, stop worrying about having all your charts and graphs looking pretty and start paying attention to the core business of making cars.

    Stop punishing the innovators

    Micro-managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with the basic organizational structure and start over. Stop pandering to mediocrity and start looking at the select few employees that are carrying the load. Keep them happy, you can easily replace the rest. Stop promoting solely on the basis of technical skill and look for people with the vision and charisma to be LEADERS.

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, great place to start your career

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. Some abnormal rules for a professional environment (no water at desk, clock in clock out, working on the line as needed...) IF you are able to advance, the increase in pay does not match the increase in workload and responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way of encouraging professional growth. Pay more for education and recognize addition education in evaluations.
