Pros

Potential good pay and benefits...or use to be... Cutting edge technology. Good facilities and resources. Great failure analysis department. Lots of great intelligent people...or use to be... Potential to learn a lot about many facets of technology.

Cons

Unbelievable bureaucracy. Handful of engineers carry the brunt, others do little if anything. Too much time spent talking about and reviewing problems. Doesn't utilize automation properly. Hasn't kept up on the latest technology and tools. Too many over-paid big-shots. No good vision or leadership. You know when management starts asking for ideas for products, you're in trouble. Worships PowerPoint and the meeting as some kind of ritual. A "Good Old Boys" legacy club company that couldn't evolve. Perhaps in some way this company deserves kudos for at least trying to hang on as long as they did.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retire or get fired. Weed out the do nothings. What comes around goes around. The systematic dis-mantling and destruction of this country has been evolving for several decades now. At what point is enough enough? When there are no longer any good paying jobs to buy our own products?

    Pros

    Friendly people and work Flexibility Schedules.

    Cons

    Downsides could start at Engineering Supervisor level. Lack of uneven work distribuation. Four years ago 2 engineers for one project now one Engineer could have 5 projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare your good highly experienced mid level Engineering Salary Range with the Market Rate since some do match Y2K rates now.

    Benefits Cuts Continue With No Salary Raises

    Pros

    It might be close to your home. After layoffs of 75% of workforce, only the best people are left. The employees still here are committed and motivated, plus some of the bureacracy has been reduced because the paper shuffling personnel just aren't there any more.
    The products are some of the most interesting in the auto industry, and even in the world.

    Cons

    Benefits cuts. No raises for years as we continue to shoulder a larger portion of the insurance costs. Expected to pick up the slack as three of every four people were laid off. No recognition, few opportunities for growth (training).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like replaceable cogs. Coming up with artificial "Fun At Work" days to replace the things that were actually "fun" wasn't successful.
