    I have been working at Nissan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    generous benefits, company likes to promote within, annual boom of growth opportunities, excellent company mission statement and growth plans

    Cons

    far too frugal, out-of-touch leadership, salaries are ADMITTEDLY the worst in the industry, far too often, the company doesn't follow the excellent mission statement and growth plan they have in order, far too much emphasis on attendance and too little emphasis on quality and performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the front line employees rather than creating rules that hinder production and produce a negative morale. attendance policy needs to be thrown out and revisited.

    I worked at Nissan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loyal to employees create long tenures for employees. Many employees have worked with Nissan for more than 20 years. Even in times of financial recession the company worked hard to avoid layoffs for its employees.

    Cons

    Though you may have the opportunity to stay with the company for a long time opportunity for advancement may be slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nissan is a great place to work but would benefit from developing effective ways to develop and retain talent

    Not very good

    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Irving, TX

    I have been working at Nissan as a contractor

    Pros

    I am a temp that have been there a year. And the only pro I seeis that I have a job.

    Cons

    The pay is not good compared to the work they are asking for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are asking for the same quality of work from your temps as the permanent employees. Then your pay and benefits should be closer to Nissan employees. And I think you should look at the fact that you are interviewing temp for positions they are already doing. Which seems to be unfair. Most companies will hire you after three mos. But Nissan have temps there for 2years that are still not permanent.

    I have been working at Nissan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Location is in a good area of greater Detroit area. Non union manufacturing

    Cons

    No carrer opportunities. One engineer is asked to do the job of 2-3 people. Long working hours. Defined pension plan was cancelled and bonuses reduced. Big disconnect between what the upper managment wants and what the company can deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create career opportunities for everybody in the company
