    Worked at Chrysler total of 20 years now

    Engineering Manager (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsGreat culture, Fitness center on site, lots of opportunities currently (but automotive is cyclic). As challenging as you want to make it.

    ConsLong drive for me. Raises are tough to get, but still payed similar to the market from what I can tell.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need more marketing towards great engineers. Not enough excitement being generated for how great the company is.

    Chrysler Technical Center is a nice place to work.

    Engineering Supervisor (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsFlexible timing, all engineering labs are under one roof. One gets a good exposure to the vehicle development process. Good employee friendly facilities at Chrysler Technical Center.

    ConsGetting parking spot is difficult if you happen to come late like 09:00am. It's further worse if own a competitor vehicle like Honda, GM, Ford, Nissan etc. FIAT, who owns now Chrysler, of course is ok.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake training classes little more effective.

    Great Company to work at with great pay!

    Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsThe pay. The job satisfaction, opportunity, and many really talented employees.

    ConsYou can work for a bad boss sometimes. If you are a great employee in your current role, sometimes you are held back from opportunities. It took me over a year to change assignments because my Management could not find a "suitable" back-fill for my job.

    We waste money by outsourcing work that should be done in-house. We need to step up our efforts with Document Management Control and 3D facility layouts at our plants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting bad managers who have "connections". Listen more to the talented experts who know what they are doing. Promote and utilize your talent from within. Stop outsourcing work and paying millions to achieve very poor & inaccurate results. Much better to perform the work internally using your skilled employees who care about our bottom line.

    Great company, but like any large company, strange decisions on management and leadership positions.

    AREA SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsPay, car and a lot of opportunities

    ConsRegional management is uninspiring. Director is not a strong leader. Should be an analyst. Work life balance is all work.

    Advice to Senior Managementgive us leaders to follow
