Honda was a great place to start my career, but not somewhere I saw myself working for the long haul.

I worked at Honda full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Honda has a fantastic benefits package and great vacation time. They treat their employees well. I had a great, friendly relationship with the other individuals on my team.

Cons

This location is in the middle of nowhere, far from any large city. I found it difficult to earn respect from my Japanese counterparts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensation was very low in relation to other engineering jobs on the market.

    I have been working at Honda

    Pros

    Enjoy working on cars.

    The use of dealership equipment

    The state of the art training

    You can clock out 40 hrs and get paid 90hrs if you are flat rate.

    Cons

    The service adviser likes to play favoritism meaning you have to kiss their asses to make lots of money

    Limit amount of cars to work on

    You can clock out 40 hours but only get paid 25hrs if you are flat rate.

    If a customer comes back with a complaint about their car that you just worked on, the advisers will throw you under the bus to save their asses even though its not your fault.

    Management will hired incompetent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not a fun occupation anymore. You freeze our payrolls but yet your payrolls increases.

    It's a pay check. Stable place to work, but not a good place if you want your pay to reflect your hard work

    I have been working at Honda

    Pros

    *No lay-offs in the history of the plant
    *Solid benefits
    *Brand new plant; clean
    *Stable place to work
    *Legitimately some good people to work with
    *Great place for assembly line workers to grow and mature within the company
    *Great place for newly graduated engineers to get work experience
    *You don't have to choose what to wear to work, because you wear uniforms
    *Free pair of work boots every year

    Cons

    *Minimal pay raises/increases, with no encouragement to try harder
    *They emphasize being on "one team", but, no such evidence of actual application of this principle
    *Feedback system is majority in negative format - not so much "good job", but "this is why this didn't work"
    *No real choice in your career path. They place you where they want you, and you have no clue how to work towards a position that you're interested in
    *Very strict with a vague set of rules. No established departmental policy - every policy is verbal, with nothing documented for reference, like the associate handbook is
    *No clear-cut way to show how you can advance within company
    *Poor job/career mapping. No one knows how to advance, outside of "do very well" for your performance review, but vague goals.
    *You do not feel like you are a vested interest within the company.
    *No true interest in technical employee advancement (They will not pay for you to go back to school, with no plans on ever doing so)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Open your eyes. When your people are dissatisfied, actually investigate instead of saying "we're looking into it"
    *Improve your medical treatment program.
    *Pay your engineers competitive wages
    *Define engineers' career paths. Allow engineers to move within company to other jobs to help them grow and mature.
