    Ok company with some areas of excellence but lots of incompetence.

    I have been working at Dana Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are friendly, facility is very nice. Some areas of excellence exist -materials lab, gear engineering and electronics.

    Cons

    Incompetence is tolerated at every level. Nearly all engineering management at VP Levels and above know nothing about engineering. Dana is last in technology and will continue until they get good engineering leadership. We changes bearings in an axle and call them a new technology, senior management eats it up. The same people have been in charge of new light vehicle axle products for 10 years without making one new product. How does that work?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dana says they want to be a technology leader. We are way behind when compared to all competitors when it comes to technology. We budget a reasonable amount of money for next generation products, but is waisted on high school level efforts by those who continue to not perform. OEMs want to see a proven solution.

    Don't be afraid to clean house. Read the book Top Grading.

    Follow up on lost opportunities, Dana has screwed up two major opportunities because of poor Diff-case design (something Dana should be very competent at). There was no consequence. Don't tolerate incompatence.

    Pros

    A lot of good people. Good holiday schedule and vacation policy.

    Cons

    Office culture continues to get worse. Atmosphere controlled by politics, more who you know than what you know and differing opinions get shouted down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shot down Grace Lake and learn what is happening at COTC. Too many company secrets being given to customers and vendors.

    Pros

    A LOT of opportunities, but need stomach for risks and exposure

    Cons

    Many survivors, stuck in the old way of doing things, not prone to innovation, despite the speech. Processes tangled in red tape, lacking the environment to attract new talent - a pity, since there is so much to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the synergies from deploying similar products to other markets / segments, this will help move away from the cost cutting brutal juggle

    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.
