    I worked at BorgWarner as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, very friendly and willing to help you out. Seemed to be lots of growth in the company and therefore many added positions and upwards momentum for current employees.

    Cons

    As an intern, I had a very slow start. I was unsure of my responsibilities and therefore had a good chunk of the internship where I feel that I accomplished nothing at all. However, this definitely picked up towards the end. I ended up being able to contribute significantly and left with a worthwhile experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps more guidance for interns.

    Pros

    Good company culture, great benefits, and job security. There's freedom to try new things, and opportunities to grow professionally. This is a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so sometimes things move slowly. The work load can be heavy at times, but supervisors are realistic and supportive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. More leadership development within the company would be one area to improve.

    I have been working at BorgWarner as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company with a good working environment, the ability to learn was great. I felt comfortable asking questions to those above me and enjoyed the experience overall. Full time employees seemed to have a good work life balance and could easily manage responsibilities in a timely manner.

    Cons

    As an intern, I found myself with not much to do sometimes which could be frustrating. I wanted to be as helpful as I could be but often found there wasn't much for me to do. I also got to know a few other interns in different departments with the same issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more structured internship program so that the interns are able to feel useful the entire time they are there.

    Pros

    They will give you infinite opportunities if you make it known you are a high performer and want to move to the top. Borg really harnesses assertiveness from sharp, young minds.

    Cons

    The manufacturing industry can be a bit boring at times. The people I work with are cool but it's not really a "really exciting place to work!" type of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devote more of your recruiting efforts to your co-ops and interns. They are the future of your company. By 2020 millennials will account for approx. 75% of the workforce. When you all of your management is upper 40s and up, it's discouraging for a young professional to pursue that company. Need strategic development plans for positions. You pay well, so offer the rest of the package and this company will do big things.

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere. Management very laid-back and open to talk to. A lot of work available to do. Very stable and good future growth path.

    Cons

    Behind the times. IT and web infrastructure very outdated for today's industry. Whereas the company's products are cutting edge, software tools are in the stone age. Workplace is also very rooted in tradition and slow to adapt changes. Requires lots of politics to get high enough to inspire important changes. Very traditional workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in internal infrastructure upgrades. Bring about new tools and focus more on their value added benefit rather than cost. Elevate more young individuals into top level and leadership positions. Allow them to bring new thinking and further grow the company, don't stifle them.
