    I thoroughly enjoyed working at BMW. The offices and location in Woodcliff Lake are beautiful All the people I worked with were wonderful. The work was interesting and enjoyable. Also, the cafeteria, is amazing!!


    The only con is that they tend to hire more consultants and "temporary" employees. There was one person with whom I worked that had been a "temporary" employee for almost 20 years!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people as opposed to temporary employees/consultaants
