I have been working at BMW

Pros

Work Life balance, International colleagues, Fun product, reasonable Employee Car Lease program (includes Insurance coverage)

Cons

Low pay for branches outside Hilliard, Ohio headquarters. Geo pay is given to employees, but not enough to compensate for standard of living in Metro NY area. Opportunities for upward mobility mostly available in Ohio location - so relocation is a must.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase base pay to allow NJ colleagues to purchase residences as easily as Ohio colleagues.

    I worked at BMW

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated, passionate, nice and fun employees. Work is interesting and challenging. Nice facilities, location and offices. Beautiful campus. BMW products are outstanding! Great perks including a company car and option to lease an additional BMW!

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain a good work-life balance with family and personal interests. Workload is often excessive, all consuming. Most "emergencies" are a result of poor senior management. For most employees office cubes are small and offer little privacy to get work done efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the workload crisis. The company was already very lean before US headcount was reduced so the existing employees were required to take up the "slack." But there was little slack. To most employees, senior management seems unconcerned. The situation is beginning to take its toll on a deteriorating relationship with dealers and potentially will adversely impact the brand.

    I worked at BMW part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People there are very nice, the working environment is also very clean and tidy.
    As a intern, they don't expect you to do any overtime.

    Cons

    It is hard to know people other than your own team and it is really hard to stay there after your graduation. Because they normally don't hire fresh graduate students. So there is always a position for Intern and that is all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More program for interns.
