I worked at BorgWarner

Pros

Competitive pay.
Flexible schedule, very fair with work/life balance.
Excellent opportunities to choose a department or interest and further that interest.
Friendly work environment.

Cons

Command structure can be somewhat confusing.
Unclear goals that change often.
Outdated equipment and aging products make production and quality goals difficult to achieve.
Poor front end planning means considerable "clean-up" work after the fact.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what your priorities are and really go after that instead of running around playing firefighter and I'd bet you get better results.

    Pros

    The benefits are comparable to other companies. Once you are "in" there are possibilities that might be explored but the proving process is long.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to like pro-active behaviors nor can they tolerate to hear bad news of any kind. They are extremely reactive to the latest problem and begin and end projects as the next problem arises. Most projects end up as window dressing to appease the customer with the latest complaint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get pro-active and fix your systems. That will go a great deal further than knee-jerking to every little problem that pops up. Stay the course and allow projects to complete.
