    Pros

    Great team enviroment on the working level. Ability to learn business side of engineering. Fast paced. Good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Uncertanty of the job/industry. Inability to move within the company. Run by non-engineers. All decissions, no matter how big or small, have to be decided at the very top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to engineering departments/personnel to the solutions to engineering issues. You've hired qualified people (specifically middle management) and you pride yourself in doing so in the media. Then, let them call some of the engineering shots.

    Pros

    The people at Chrysler are the BEST, and contrary to the posts by some individuals seen here, characteristically very strong and resilient. There is also a spirit of belonging, and camaraderie at Chrysler unlike any other company - and even (or especially) in these most difficult of times, people help each other and pull together. It helps to be a small nimble company, with a long history of innovation and invention, and a direct 2-way exchange with senior management.

    Cons

    Sadly Chrysler is in a far worse position than it would have been due to the damage done by Daimler: Chrysler was irrefutably the gem of American industry in 1998 and at the pinnacle of Automotive success when it was sold out, and then like the proverbial cash cow, systematically bled dry of cash, quality, and product content. - Fortunately, Cerberus immediately took extreme measures and spent enormous sums to reinstate quality and the product - putting "Customer First" and "Quality PERIOD". - So there is now therefore a much better prospect for the long haul - even if it means operating with some new, or radically different business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take back the 20% that Daimler still holds over your head.
