    Pros

    great pay, meet strong people, great retail work experience and great networking capabilities. management training is great and alot of role playing is done to promote employees to work hard to get promoted.

    Cons

    long hours, no holidays off, you can not call in for anything (unless you are dead, then you need to schedule that day off)

    Advice to Management

    take care of employees, treat everyone as if they will be your next boss, try to remember that employees needlives too!

    Pros

    On-site gym and child care center.

    Cons

    We are all asked to produce more with less resources. Quality of work suffers when quantity is demanded. Customer service related departments have an extensive training course before the employees begin their work. Other more technical areas have no training course and the staff are expected to train each other with minimal managerial input.

    Advice to Management

    Management promotions don't work when the new manager lacks knowledge or experience in the new department. Mentor your subordinates.

    Pros

    Learning experience. Things are such a mess that employees have to learn how to do all the things by themselves.

    Cons

    Lack of ethics is the rule at Nissan. About the work, the system used at this company is...Excel. Tons of useless requests from management who doesnt understand the business. Ignorant management promoting people as ignorante as them, while the good employees suffer the consequences. Lot of expats at management level who have to be taught how to run the business. Talent Management is a joke - they even recommend dirty networking to get promotions or positions and openly say that employees are responsible to find new position by themselves - skills and knowledge aren't important. Key employees are leaving the company that makes things even worse!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at European headquarters - complete disaster.


  6. Exhausting, soul destroying, dead end job. Managed by bullies who expect too much.

    Pros

    Working the line causes forced weight loss. Salary is ok but poor for level of work expected clean working environment.

    Cons

    Micro managed by supervisors for petty things. Medical advice ignored by management following work related injuries. (Very common on trim) Can't get holidays off for anything as only one person can be off in 35 people team and always someone off sick through work related injury. Criticism for asking for toilet which they ask you if you need a number 1 or 2. Your allowed 2 minutes for number 1 and 5 for number 2 and they time you and record your toilet visit. Back pain, pain in knees. There is absolutely no career progression. The rare occasion someone gets team leader (usually supervisors mate / brown nose) The most skilled lads are left on hardest jobs sometimes for decades. No pay rise for promotion, they call it (standing in) and pay the same for up to 2 years and when your legally entitled to pay rise they stand you down and stand up the next mug. The easiest jobs are given out to people who brown nose. According to senior management your immediate supervisor can only give his staff 3/5 performance rating at the best since pay rise is related to performance. Most get 2/5. You spend the entire day running around to keep up and everyone under pressure. High pressure environment. Spending large parts of break getting back up line. Staff even refused holidays for funerals of grandparents. Being referred to as your station number. Work place politics. Propaganda pre pay deal. I could go on. Favouritism...

    Advice to Management

    Best of luck when you have an entire zone of people who don't want to be there. Which is what I experienced along side a mass exodus of highly skilled experienced workers walking out.


  7. Hell, please sir can I go to the toilet, 6 day weeks, no job rotation, no prospects unless you like to brown nose.

    Pros

    maybe salary. international environment. fast changing environment if you an "ass-licker" - you will progress.

    Cons

    a lot of unprofessionalism among the employees. HR department is rather creating problems then helping. People are not educated and not receiving take-overs when newly employed. No information sharing or storage. A lot of hires are dumm by their nature, they do not understand the processes. Hard to work with those people. Very disorganized structure.

    Advice to Management

    To take leadership and management training! Make less coffee breaks and work more.

    Pros

    Chez Nissan Europe, travailler dans l'équipe de communications et marketing : - Grande entreprise, apparaît bien sur le CV - Beaucoup de médias / budgets de publicité afin que vous fassiez quelques coups cools et fous - Opportunité pour voyager - Bon

    In Nissan Europe, working in Marketing Communications team: - Big company, looks good on CV - Lots of media/advertising budget so you get to do some crazy cool stunts - Opportunity for travel - Good salary - If you are a serial office politician this is the place for you - Some very good HUMAN work colleagues

    Cons

    Chez Nissan Europe, travailler dans l'équipe de communications et marketing : - Tons de la politique de bureau, des ragots et de la simple méchanceté - Les personnes alternent tant leurs postes, que beaucoup de gens n'ont aucune idée de ce qu'ils font - Dans les communications et marketing, les gens n'ont jamais entendu les bases tel que les KPI et objectifs - Hiérarchie paralysante : tout ce que vous faites a besoin d'être approuvé par une direction supérieure (parfois même le PDG) - Des personnes aléatoires obtiennent des promotions & augmentations, habituellement les collègues de bureau et ceux qui sont proches de la direction - De folles heures de travail : parfois des réunions à 9 heures du soir ! La direction se plaint si vous voulez partir et continuer votre vie. Si vous avez des enfants, ces réunions vont seulement continuer sans vous

    In Nissan Europe, working in Marketing Communications team: - Tons of office politics, gossip and just plain nastiness - People rotate their positions a lot, so many people have NO idea of what they are doing - In Marketing Communications, people never heard of the basics such as KPIs and objectives - Crippling hierarchy: everything you do needs to be approved by senior management (sometimes even the CEO) - Random people get promotions & raises, usually the office buddies and those cozy with management - Crazy working hours: sometimes meetings at 9 PM! Management complains if you want to leave and get on with your life. If you have kids these meetings will just go on without you

    Advice to Management

    1) S'il vous plaît rendez-vous compte que les gens ont une vie en dehors du travail. 2) S'il vous plaît jugez vos collègues par leur TRAVAIL et non par les commérages / commentaires d'autres personnes

    1) Please realize people have lives outside work. 2) Please judge your colleagues by their WORK and not by gossip/comments from other people
