    I worked at Honda R & D Americas

    Pros

    Excellent Management and Structure, Flexible start time, Passionate coworkers, Strong company values, Training programs.
    Honda develops young talent as well as any organization I've seen. They have internal classes that give you literally every tool you need to do your job effectively. Honda has a process for everything, and they follow the processes exactly. You will also receive regular guidance from you managers and this will help you learn to do your new job very well. If you are someone who likes this type of formal management and guidance you will thrive here. Coworkers are very passionate about their jobs, and this makes it a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement, Lower pay structure, Ultra conservative thinking crushes new ideas

    Leaving Honda was not easy for me, but I didn't see much opportunity to get ahead in the company. The company has a rigid hierarchy, which provides excellent leadership, but also doesn't offer much in terms of promotions. In Chassis Design group there were close to 100 engineers, and 3 managers, 10 group leaders. The odds of being promoted were not in your favor. In addition he auto industry in the USA isn't growing fast enough to enable much outward growth. This is a superb place to work for 3-5 years, get experience and apply it somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things are pretty well managed at Honda, keep doing a good job. I wish I had the same kind of management that I had at Honda in my new job.
