I worked at BMW Manufacturing Corporation

Pros

The Employee lease program is generous
Cafeteria offers food of acceptable quality at an affordable price
Safety is a primary concern

Cons

Close German oversight does not allow for the "American Way"
Dirty Bathrooms where tours are not taken
Dangerous place to work
Do not want to invest money into employees
Strict about time (lunches) but generally require salaried employees to work a lot of uncompensated overtime

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop running the plant like it is in Germany, it isn't. The pay and benefits are not competitive, stop hiding behind your prestigious brand and step up to the plate as an employer.

    I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation

    Pros

    Car program is fantastic. Benefits have been great, but have been slashed now.

    Cons

    Since many manager positions are slated as German only, these are 3 year contract positions, so a lack of consistency. Every three years there is a new direction, from someone who needs time to adjust to the culture change. The way it's done in Germany doesn't work everywhere. Lack of true innovation, so if you're a trailblazer you're wasting your time.
    HR is a trainwreck, which causes repercussions at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up HR & stop rotating management every 3 years.

    Very good pay and benefits. The overall compensation package is one of the best in South Carolina and well within the industry standards

    Cons

    Too many politics between departments that slow down day to day business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up to Germany. Start making and implementing decisions without second guessing!
