    Pros

    laid back managers and a very inviting culture.

    Cons

    it seemed like there was a lot of turn over amongst mid level buyers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring back interns. why do you invest all that time and money in them if you are not going to hire them full time?

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

    Pros

    Support from the company was really good - housing provided, travel to and from site was paid for, and the access to management was fantastic. People are busy but really willing to make time and meet to hear you out. The training and initiation was also pretty thorough.

    Also, if you're starting your career there, it seems quite easy to move around and work on whatever interests you, which is a big plus if you don't want to get stuck doing one thing or if you aren't 100% sure what you want to work on. Management tends to be quite young, so there are certainly ways to move up quickly if you're willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Communication between divisions, and even between product lines, could definitely be better. There's a lot of talk about each little group reinventing the wheel every time a problem comes up, but efforts to improve collaboration seem to be a little slow.

    The flip side of the easy-moving and youthful management mentioned above is that there was quite a lot of internal turnover during my time, which doesn't seem to be atypical. The company is growing quick and moving, internally, even quicker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus on speeding up growth is good, but make sure that the company can stand the pace without fragmenting too much!

    Former Employee - Intern/Co-op in Seneca, SC

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    In my department, I could not have had a better experience. I was given projects that a full-time engineer would take on - an unmatched level of responsibility for an intern at any company.
    7-3:30 shift gives you the afternoon.
    Every employee reaches out to offer help and wishes you luck at the end of your rotation
    Pay for an intern is good, not great.
    Every full-time employee feels as though they are well-paid

    Cons

    No structured intern/co-op program so each person has a different experience. Other interns had little to no responsibility and took almost nothing from their experience. It depends a lot on who your manager is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at BorgWarner part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay compared to area locations for same job. Really nice staff / co- workers. HR was quite responsive

    Cons

    Hireling of head guard was rushed and did not consider how that person would be as a manager. Turned out to be a disaster and the process was slow moving from HR. They were quite respectful of workers complaints however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers who have worked in lower positions at this company rather than bringing in someone new.
