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

    Pros

    It is a big company so it is possible to collaborate with people in a wide variety of roles. Fairly open management team in terms of willingness to meet with you. I was an intern so that sometimes goes to my advantage, but many people were willing to step into mentorship roles.

    Cons

    Being such a large company there is some bureaucracy that employees have to work through. Although there are opportunities to move around, it is sometimes hard to know what is available and what is going on outside of what is quite public or directly relevant to your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the push to be open and horizontal.

    Pros

    Pays better than most jobs you can get with no experience.

    Cons

    Dead end. New agreements between the Uaw and FCA make it impossible to afford the the product their workers build.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Chrysler full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many vehicles on Mercedes Platforms bought by Fiat was smart move. Canadian Plants much better quality than U.S. plants.

    Cons

    Can't hire enough management personnel because they want them dirt cheap on U.S. side. The managers they do have, they work them into the ground and then play games with them. Everyone that's anyone is leaving in middle management due to the poor treatment. Jobs threatened on daily basis and pensions frozen will only cause more turn over and worse quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your best assets are your people. Start treating them this way or another bankruptcy is inevitable! Evaluation process is a joke and no mentoring will stagnate the growth. Those in the trenches are treated poorly and they have the most responsibility. Bean counters with fewer reports have monopolized the higher bonuses.

    I have been working at Chrysler full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some great people and culture. No BS, great teamwork, since middle management and up all went through bankruptcy and know what's really important (vs. waste). Typical strong automotive benefits, driven by UAW negotiations.

    Cons

    Every ten years the industry tanks, and Chrysler approaches extinction as one of the weaker players. With these close shaves come cutbacks, retrenching, and a general reinvention of processes previously running smoothly. As a result, the company is continuously reinventing itself - with process changes lacking the tried and true continuity that leads to quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus. People are spread too thin, and change is too frequent. Do fewer things, better, and start to build credibility with consumers. We are running too fast since the Fiat integration.

    I have been working at Chrysler full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very large place, opportunity to work on some really cool projects. There are some very smart people roaming the halls. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Need to stay in one position for 18 months before you can rotate some place else.

    It is like any job where sometimes you jive with the team you are on and sometimes you do not and I sadly did not. My particular manager was a micromanager/nit picker which drove me crazy, but they are not all like that.

    I struggled with work/life balance. There was an expectation to work long days and while perhaps you would not be reprimanded for not, you would also never advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communication open

    Pros

    The culture of the company is great
    People are open to new ideas
    Management is positive to work with because they know that growth comes from the new hires and the innovation we bring. Diversity inclusion is great here. They have a lot of resource groups to participate in.

    Cons

    Some people were not open minded to other cultures., but management were willing to listen to solve issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, management was the best part. All of the leaders in the company i met with were so willing to sit down with me.
