My overall experience has been positive.

Team Manager (Current Employee) Lincoln, AL

Pros- Good pay for the location
- Great benefits
- Easy to shine if you have the ability to build relationships and are a hard worker with some intelligence
- Pride in Honda name
- Definitely not uptight work environment (can be fun actually)
- I like the people I work with
- Hopeful of future improvements

Cons- Lots of fingerpointing and backbiting
- Terrible relationships between departments
- I don't understand alot of Senior Level management decisions and they don't explain them well
- Vertical growth (promotions) are limited and often the decisions seem questionable
- Not much flexibility if you're on the assembly line
- Very little accountability
- Seemingly, simple changes take way too long (if they happen at all)
- There is definitely a "Grass is Greener" syndrome here. Not much appreciate for what we have, only what others perceive is better somewhere else.

Advice to Senior ManagementReact more quickly to concerns, particularly those involving associate morale. Hold management team more accountable. Management team needs to hold their team more accountable. Reward individuals who make a difference. Correct or dismiss those who are not having a positive impact. Quit shuffling incapable managers around and terminate them. Learn what works at other high morale companies and invest into improving morale. Finally, major reconstruction is needed in order to improve accountablity and speed up problem solving. There is too much division between departments and it is too easy to finger point and deflect responsibilities.

    ZERO Growth Opportunity and Non-competitive Wages

    Associate Technical Specialist (Current Employee) Lincoln, AL

    I have been working at HMA (Honda Manufacturing of Alabama)


    Pros: Honda does their best not to lay anyone off, even in the toughest of times. Can't get fired unless you don't show up to work… Cons: Absolutely ZERO growth opportunity. Been in the same position for 10 years with great evaluations. Unless the position exists somewhere in the plant, forget about… Advice to Senior Management: 1) Re-evaluate the growth scale so people don't dead end at a certain level, otherwise the next growth opportunity will be out the door… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    More work and less pay.

    Team Manager (Current Employee) Anniston, AL

    I have been working at HMA (Honda Manufacturing of Alabama)


    Pros: Health / Medical Benefits are good. You have a job for life if you… Cons: Poor leadership. Very difficult place to work these days. Workload on salaried associates is almost unbearable. No signs of improvement anytime on the near future.… Advice to Senior Management: If the strategy is to continue to reduce the salaried associates and not backfill...tell the associates. Most are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
