    Pros

    lots of exposure, and lots of new things to learn. Cool cars. Its a big name so that will open some doors in the future.

    Cons

    Low pay. Hard to get in. and most of the times to move around the company or to start you need to know someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on the benefits of the workers. They need to feel like the company actually likes them.
