Pros

The pay is fair and the remaining benefits (ie. vacation) is excellent. There is a high level of opportunity for mobility within the organization and diversification of talent and learning is encouraged. There is an abundance of opportunity for training outside of job description.

Cons

The economics of working in the automotive sector create a never ending sense of insecurity. The corporation has been in bankruptcy proceeding for over three years which has placed restraints on local spending. As a result, the facilities are not well maintained and certainly not what a new hire would expect when entering the corporate world.

    Really... Chapter 11 for four years? Seriously?

    Pros

    Interesting projects and numerous opportunities for travel abroad, depending on the product line you are involved with. Challenging assignments where your knowledge and skills will be heavily relied on to get the job done, due to many recent extreme reductions in headcount.

    Cons

    Ongoing trouble in the auto industry, gradual erosion of benefits, and bleak outlook for long term corporate survival. The company has not emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy after four long years. Poor channels of communication with peers, managers, and customers. Decisions are regularly made by a large group consensus, and the majority rarely agree. Very low sense of job security due to volitility in the industry and large movement of manufacturing from North America to overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete the restructuring now and emerge from bankruptcy to provide stakeholder confidence and restore a positive direction for the future of the company.

    Pros

    Global exposure, diverse work opportunities, competitive salaries

    Cons

    Chapter 11, too much like GM, slow to react to the market, treats retirees very poorly, too much overhead cost to be competitive.
    Their matrix organization makes it quite difficult to see who you work for; way too many "bosses".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your offices and conference rooms; have a good look around and communicate (not just chat) with people in the trenches. Shut down the political environment (we've enough of that in Washington, DC) and can the special interests. Practice what you preach with all of the Excellence attributes, not just those that seem convenient at the moment.
