    Pros

    Down to earth coworkers, great development opportunities for the right people, and great benefits. The company gives back to its employees.

    Cons

    Most locations are in a rural setting, which could be a positive for some!

    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 Management

    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.


  3. Great place to work, however a bit too slow to adapt to changes in the current business climate

    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 IT and web infrastructure very outdated for today's industry.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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    If you put in your time and have the good ability you'll be rewarded with growth opportunities. The 401k match is the best I've ever heard of. Healthcare benefits are average.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be an issue. The international supply and customer base can require long hours. Staffing is a concern as it is at most American firms. You get the feeling that the company could be so much more if we were more willing to invest in new products.

    Advice to Management

    If BorgWarner wants to be a real technology leader, you need to invest more in product development.

    Great co-workers, fantastic work environment, and good/flexible hours. They put large amounts of research into all of the produce and it shows.

    Limited opportunities for promotions, and some degree of lack of communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Good work!

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. The Annual bonuses based on plant performance have been very generous over the last few years.

    Cons

    They absolutely do not care if employees are happy or not. HR is rude and won't even talk to employees (when they bother to come out of their offices). Don't bother to complain, you will be retaliated against, just take your beating and keep quiet. Too many layers of Management and very poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees would be more productive employees.

    Cons

    High pressure environment. I was not stressed very much, but much of management was.

    Advice to Management

    Some entry-level employees will more direction that what I received, however it was perfect for me

    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 Management

    Keep it up!
