I have been working at Gentex (Michigan) full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Numerous advancement opportunities with a extremely friendly staff.

Cons

The hours vary just like any other manufacture. This makes it hard to plan outings without using vacation time. This is typical of any auto manufacture.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Nice facilities Up to date technology and computer systems Overall a comfortable environment

    Cons

    Mechanical engineering takes a back seat to other disciplines like software and electrical, because the mechanical side of the product is not the core IP. This results in a significantly lower base salary. In general, salary is low compared to equivalent companies, and Gentex tries to make up for that with profit sharing but doesn't quite get there. The ME work I found quite boring, and I saw my job turning into a CAD designer. Lastly, I wonder about the legality of the interview questions. An example, "Do you feel you had a normal childhood". Hmmmm.
