Great starter job...but lacking upward opportunities.

Pros

Great coworkers for a young crowd. For those looking to settle down, this company offers great long term job security as long as you aren't too ambitious for advancement. Good benefits as well.

Cons

Yearly pay increases are typically below inflation. Promotions have very little to do with ability and more to do with tenure. Senior management often tell you that you are important, but rarely do they show it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

End the revolving door. You are bleeding talent and losing valuable knowledge as they leave after 5 years. It should be cheaper to keep talent than to recruit, relocate, and train new bodies.

    I worked at Honda

    Pros

    Honda R&D has a GREAT co-op program. Well, "had" a great co-op program. Word has it that they've ditched it in this automotive market downturn. I had a great experience there and learned a lot about mechanical engineering.

    Cons

    The co-op program is now gone. If they reinstate it, I would HIGHLY recommend applying. But the location is terrible. Ohio? C'mon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the co-op program! It's valuable!

    Overall a good place to start off, but the "revolving doors" are an indication that this is not necessarily a place you

    I have been working at Honda

    Pros

    Honda is an amazing company to work for. You can learn a lot from the expertise of those above you, and there is much to learn that you can either use at Honda or at another company to bring real value to their organization. The people are generally very supportive and see each other as "teammates" instead of opponents. This is why such quality product comes from this R&D center.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty marginal (even though they claim that it is competitive). Growth can seem slow if you don't embody exactly what your superiors want, but they don't make what they want very clear necessarily.

    Work can sometimes be very overwhelming, and if it weren't for the paid overtime, the high expectations that are put on the associates could never be met.
