    I worked at Brose full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Open door policy.
    - Positive reputation
    - Some great people there

    Cons

    - Open office
    - Some team members are problematic but management ignores it
    - Overworked teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your teams (stop overworking team members). Limit meetings - I rarely saw my manager. The discussions when management is not around also reveal many weaknesses among certain leaders.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Warren, MI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warren, MI

    I have been working at Brose full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to learn the ropes, ins and outs of material planning, distribution and related programs (i.e. SAP). Within the plant and office there are some very personable people among the hierarchy. Benefits ok.

    Cons

    Upper Management plays blaming game when issues crop up. No effort made to cooperate between groups . High expectation to be available 24/7. Frowned upon if you arrive after 8 and leave before 6 pm. Very political. Prior Manager did not have management experience and did not have his peoples backs and passed judgement without knowing all facts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New Manager seems to be an improvement. Get to know each department. Structure cooperation between departments.

    I worked at Brose

    Pros

    There is a great sense of camaraderie at the Warren location because of the plant manager. Though he may soon move up the ladder, he's wonderful at developing those beneath him and he extremely personable.

    Cons

    As a material planner, you may be pressed to work many 12+ hour days. It was typical for me to spend 50-60 hours a week at work, unplanned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change much, it's a successful system.
