Pros

Excellent 401k, decent medical/dental, somewhat competitive salary, tuition reimbursement. Training/continued education is encouraged. Hands-on engineering is encouraged.

Cons

Long hours are sometimes encouraged, if not expected. During tough economic times like these in the US, engineers are asked to take on more work and work longer hours. The free fitness center just closed.

Advice to Management

There should be more focus from HR and Senior Management on retaining their best engineers. Don't let their salaries fall behind what other companies are offering. More importantly, don't let their salaries fall behind what you are offering new hires with the same or less experience. It is hard to find good driveline engineers and even harder to train those without driveline experience. Please maintain the current 401k matching. It is our only hope of affording retirement and health care.

    Pros

    I will never forget the friendships and bonds that I had made. The people I worked with were the best group of hard working individuals that you would ever meet!

    Cons

    Watch out for the company that wants more and more from you, then makes more and more money off of your sweat, makes you promises that are not kept and then stabs you in the back

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how you can sleep at night.
