    Current Employee - Engineering Co-Op in Asheville, NC

    I have been working at BorgWarner part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked as an intern in the Asheville NC and Seneca SC plants. Both have very positive work environments, value quality, and have pride in their work.

    Cons

    Sometimes interns are underused (Seneca), and the tasks can be monotonous. Part-time employees do not get paid holiday days even when they fall on normal work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns more responsibilities, involve them in the actual workings of the company and invite them to meetings so they can see the larger scope of how things work. Asheville was great about this but Seneca could do better.

    Pros

    Great place to work, lots to learn, friendly people.

    Cons

    Sometimes monotonous work was required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Co-op program needs more organization. It would be great to have an assigned mentor. I was lucky enough to find an engineer who kind of unofficially did this, but I know many other co-ops felt they lacked guidance.

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good product, and good long term goals. BorgWarner offers above average compensation for the area and a excellent benefits package which are very attractive.

    Cons

    Mismanagement of resources and major projects has caused higher than needed turn over. Project were taken on with to few resources available which has lead to major delays. Overwork of the employees is another issue, as a salaried individual it was not uncommon to see 80 hrs a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more resources and a better understand of what you are committing to before your agree to it.

    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Former Employee - Global Commodity Management in Auburn Hills, MI
    Former Employee - Global Commodity Management in Auburn Hills, MI

    I worked at BorgWarner as an intern (less than a 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.

    I have been working at BorgWarner as an intern (less than a 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.
