Out of balance, but to be fair it seems much of the Automotive industry is as well.

Senior Supplier Quality Engineer (Current Employee)
Warren, MI

ProsThe use of company vehicles is a nice bonus.

ConsExpectations are for 12+ hour work days, anything less and you're a slacker.

Advice to Senior ManagementHR practices are so far out of alignment that the company has no chance for success. Top performers are not rewarded, under performers are not dealt with, which eventually drives the top performers down to a lower level of performance. Additionally, performance metrics are not in alignment with company goals, again, driving the wrong performance. This appears to be a fairly common problem across Manufacturing, Purchasing and Engineering.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
