    Leading change and process improvements, as a project manager and SAP Basis Manager

    SAP Basis Manager (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsIf you like cars/trucks, and like constant change, then this is the place for you. Interesting people, and challenging projects will bring out the best in those wishing to improve, professionally and personally.

    ConsWork/life balance is not really considered important. They are making improvements, but have a long way to go. Cyclical market for cars will have you earning great rewards for a few years, then massive cuts for a couple. Instability in the market does not provide for much job security.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect work/life balance, and pay people for what thy work. Don't expect salaried employees to work 60 hours a week for a 40-hour paycheck. Provide a less disparaging bonus plan, where professionals earn within 20% of the top executives (ie. 10% bonus for professionals, and then 30% would be max for executives, instead of 100% or more).

    Frustrating.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsRelaxed environment most of the time, some of the best co-workers I've ever had. Good relationship with immediate supervisor. Work is interesting and challenging. Union protection.

    ConsWages are just okay. It seems to be that the only way to get a pay increase is to wait it out and put your time in. Too much confusion on practices and policies. Mid and upper level management quickly lose sight of what it takes to do the jobs of those they manage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive merit-based wage increases to the hard-working and highly skilled employees who care about the future of the company. Realize that inspiration must come from the top on down, and weed out the employees that become a cancer to the work environment.
