    Pros

    Nice and supportive co-works and physical plant at HQ's. Excellent on site test lab.

    Cons

    Too little work to say busy, while others seemed overwhelmed. No real systems in place, as everything seems like it's being done for the first time. Compared to other places I've worked, there was a general lack of good, timely flow of communications from senior management to the mid-level employees.

    I worked at Dana Corporation

    Pros

    The new leadership team is strong and very proactive. The outlined corporate strategy is clear and it should return financial stability back to the company. There are great opportunities for advancement with in the financial and supply chain organizations. Dana has a laid back corporate culture and stresses the work life balance. Management allows for flexible working locations in some cases.

    Cons

    The work can be repetitive and many simple tasks are complete manually. Navigating Dana's matrix structure can be confusing and the flow of information suffers as a result. Maumee, OH provides a quite place to live but does not offer any excitement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to clarify the corporate strategy to employees. Stress the importance to collaboration between divisions (eg: Engineering, Sales and Finance)

    I worked at Dana Corporation

    Pros

    It used to be a very people-centric company. One that you would be proud to work at. However, top management changed radically when people that had no stake in the long term future of the company were brought in from the outside.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Arbitrary, micromanaging general management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the leadership grew up in Dana and are not just stopping through for a visit and a bonus.
