    Pros

    Job Security
    Decent pay
    Decent benefits
    Not really much else, some of your colleagues will see the place for what it is and be halfway nice.

    Cons

    Management lacks perspective
    If your not Japanese, you will not advance
    No work/life balance, told "no personal conversation, talk is business"
    45-50 hour work week expected minimum, although they are only paying you for 40

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real. Quit asking for everything to be done "right this second" because then you and your employees lose perspective on what is really important.

    Pros

    You get to travel, learn various supplier processes, and gain experience working for a top automotive company.

    Cons

    This company is completely broken. The place has many systems and policies but all of them are ineffective or completely ignored. Half of the employees don't even read or respond to emails. There is also so much red tape around everything that no wonder half of the people aren't doing their jobs. You are pretty much set up for failure the moment you walk through the door. Stay far away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about the short term business condition. Management does things that will hurt the company later on just to save a few pennies now.

    Pros

    Good benefits, health insurance, etc. If you're lazy you probably won't be fired. Flexible with vacation and comp time, which you will earn plenty of.

    Cons

    In Athens, management is incredibly short sighted. Everything is first priority so nothing takes priority and it all has to be done right now. Always rushed to finish anything and move on to the next so most are left half done. Incredibly stressful and most specialists I have talked to are looking for a way out. I've heard things in Maryville are different but I can't say for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on long term performance, not short term targets that are easily manipulated. Treat people the way you would expect to be treated and understand that people are your most valuable resource. You don't get the best results out of people, or machines for that matter, by running them 100% capacity 100% of the time.
