    Pros

    Great learning experience. Everyone is very helpful and a lot of work is required, which in turn makes a great learning experience for any new engineers that are beginning their career in the automotive industry and any other industry.

    Cons

    One of benefits of working a lot is obtaining a lot of informaiton and experience, but at the same time, an engineer will be working a lot of hours to complete assignments. In turn, an engineer will have to sacrifice some of his/her personal time for work.

    Advice to Management

    There is great direction and a great business structure. The open door/flat business heirarchy is beneficial in implementing changes. Be more aware of hours being worked by engineers to complete projects/jobs because there are a lot of hours being worked because some managers require them.


  2. A company that has potential to go far, but the employees are so bitter and hateful that success is doomed.

    Pros

    It's in a great location. It's the Auto business

    Cons

    LONG HOURS (7 AM until 6:30 is typical) On sales close, you will work until midnight. No exceptions. Employees hate each other. Benefits are terrible - especially insurance high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees to make them happy. Get rid of the bitter apples. From the secretaries (ESPECIALLY THE SECRETARIES) on up, they are all bitter.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off are offered, as well as insurance (health, dental, vision), life insurance, 401k, etc. Work environment relatively clean and friendly.

    Cons

    Promotion selection could use some work. I am by nature a fast grower/learner, and have felt stagnant in my job for quite some time. Opportunities seem to be given to others in a loose "good-ol-boy" system to people who are sorely underqualified for their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance to prove themselves. Subject lower level management and line leads frequent anonymous employee surveys.

    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 Management

    Create career opportunities for everybody in the company

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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