The only thing that matters is blaming others for problems

Mechanical Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee)
Spartanburg, SC

I worked at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsI was lucky enough to have a very great manager who allowed me to explore and really dig into some great projects. Opportunity to work with a very cool product.

ConsSome people are very set in their ways here and day to day business seems focused on deflecting blame for problems to other internal departments. The location is not ideal either. Greenville is an OK city but nothing to rave about.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more about working with other departments instead of arguing about who is to blame.

BMW offers a good pay rate for the area, and excellent benefits.

Engineer (Current Employee)
Greer, SC

I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe company is very stable. It offers lots of opportunity for horizontal movement to keep things interesting. The vehicle lease program is fantastic. There are plenty of opportunities for travel to Germany and other plant locations, as well as doing long-term assignments abroad.

ConsCan be a bit slow depending on where you work. The Germans don't always treat Americans as peers, but more like labor workers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I've learned a great deal more about logistics while working for BMW

Inventory Analyst (Current Employee)
Greer, SC

I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsBMW gives you many opportunities to learn about different area of the operation. You not only learn about logistics, you learn about production and assembly.

ConsThe parking lot is too far from the building

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more round table with the employees to get more feed back on what they need out on the production floor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Drama on full display

Production Associate (Former Employee)
Greer, SC

I worked at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou can have a direct impact on the quality of a high dollar product.
Good benefits.
Mostly good fellow employees.

ConsThe few bad apples have entirely to much influence and know how to work the system.
Time spent working 3rd shift is way to long...often 10 years or more.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people that actually care about the quality of the job they are doing. If you look it is not hard to find them. Understand that the ones that are just "there" are hurting your quality and production.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
