    I worked at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay,got along with everybody. Plenty of Vacation time and personal time. This is a UAW shop they make a good product.

    Cons

    Sometimes supervisors can be put under a lot of pressure witch is then passed on down the line. Union can be ineffective at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quality should always be 1st. Production without quality is useless.

    I have been working at American Axle & Manufacturing part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay rate for interns. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Interns are cycled randomly through the company, not every rotation will be relevant to your future career goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow interns to pick tehir rotations so they can learn more about their areas of interest.

    I worked at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company expects the best from their suppliers of machinery. Always had top notch equipment with a State of the Art mindset.

    Cons

    There is a mindset in the organization that the Executive Leadership team is entitled to huge amounts of money and the common worker is deserving of pennies. The Executive Leadership team does not think very highly of the UAW workforce and has an anti-American Worker attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember where you came from even if it means your EBITA is impacted. The Global Umbrella is changing and you might need some good American workers

    I have been working at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible time. Great opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Less diversified products. Lack of long term plans. Managers push for best results with least investment, and no patience. Depending on groups, some are good, and some are bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the part that I don't like much. Managers don't do their job well. Too much overlap and overhead. They like to teach you how to do your job.
