    About the same as most Tier 1 Automotive Suppliers

    UK based role

    Marketing (Former Employee)
    Birmingham, England (UK)

    ProsGood employer, looks after your health

    ConsBeing an American Automotive firm will always mean a meagre salary, fewer benefits and the sound of constant whingeing from people who have been there a long time (fewer benefits, no pay rises, loss of perks, moral etc)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFewer meetings and more decision making!

    Earn a living but expect to be undervalued.

    Product Engineer (Current Employee)
    Washington, MI

    ProsGood work experience to learn various internal management systems for quality and production. For me it was also a revelation of dealing with offshore suppliers and developing them to produce and maintain high quality components.

    ConsShareholder value undermines value of non-management employees. Minimal investment in developing talent for contract employees - arrive with it or develop it on your own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees make a company - good ones are hard to find. If you have them - treat them to keep them. This is a comment on the many people leaving the company during the time I worked there for two years from 2011- 2013.
