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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, on site gym and nurse, employee tuition reimbursement, and annual bonus.

    Cons

    harsh and critical working environment. no human resource support, non union, negative growth potential. poor work life balance. Cultural Environment is extremely negative.

    Advice to Management

    Make human resources more "HUMAN" . They don't work for the employee, they work against. the employee- and enjoy it. Offer more incentives and rewards to crew members who work well. Understand that work and home make up an employees livelyhood, that is to say, the employee works to take care of home, and that matters. be more employee motivated, not fire motivated.

    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 Management

    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 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 Management

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

    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.

    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 Management

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