    Promotes a "culture of growth"

    Technician (Former Employee)
    Cadillac, MI

    ProsOpportunity for advancement, Promotes from within, Good benefits, Fair policies. BorgWarner has a policy of acquiring companies, taking the best-of-the-best and implementing it corporate wide. I learned a tremendous amount about business operations while working for this company. They have a tuition reimbursement program and I earned my BA while working full time.

    ConsIt is an automotive-based company and the automotive markets have waned in recent years. BorgWarner has diversified itself pretty well by gaining international customers as well as domestic U.S. customers, but the recession was still pretty hard on the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. BorgWarner has an excellent management team.

    IT Support

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBig company that uses technology

    ConsManagement in IT doesn't know how to run a company this size like a big boy company. Still trying to operate like ma and pa kettle. Way to political, people hat don't have the know how have the power. Stay away from this place. They talk like they care about their production people but behind closed doors they are an expendable resource. They look at IT as a black hole and don't give the money needed, under funded and staffed.

    Advice to Senior Managementclean house and get some leaders from companies that have good IT models

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

    Great place to work!

    Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee)
    Asheville, NC

    ProsBorgWarner's Turbo Systems division is a very innovative and collaborative environment to work in. Facilities are top-notch and young talent is often brought in and cultivated here.

    ConsHiring process is slow and unreliable. There are also some inefficiencies in the work flow process that makes getting medium priority projects done in a timely manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBorgWarner needs to do more work on advanced projects to become a leader in technology, not a follower. Creating an advanced development group separately from product development could alleviate this issue.

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