Current Employee - Engineering Coordinator in Marysville, OH
Current Employee - Engineering Coordinator in Marysville, OH

I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay, great benefits, great place to start your career

Cons

Little opportunity for advancement. Some abnormal rules for a professional environment (no water at desk, clock in clock out, working on the line as needed...) IF you are able to advance, the increase in pay does not match the increase in workload and responsibility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a better way of encouraging professional growth. Pay more for education and recognize addition education in evaluations.

    Current Employee - Engineering Coordinator in East Liberty, OH
    Current Employee - Engineering Coordinator in East Liberty, OH

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits (if your allowed to use them or not cheated out of them)
    Yearly Bonus
    Other than money there are no Pros.

    Cons

    Managers are more like prison wardens. "Respect for the individual" is no longer used except in the company's vision statement!

    Currently the company is doing everything possible to eliminate those getting close to retirement!
    Seniority counts for nothing and experience is not considered. Job assignments and shift preference are not given out on time of service or experience; it’s not what you know it’s who you know.
    Promotions and favored positions are given only to the “Good Ole Boys” using the tight buddy system.

    Evaluations are a joke, they are not used to improve performance or praise good performance; but used as a tool to cover managements short comings at your expense.

    HR and CC are of no use to anyone. The open door policy, means if you don’t like it; there is the front door, don’t let it hit you on the way out.

    In-house product quality is poor due to inconsistency of training, fatigued workers and outdated/poorly maintenanced equipment.

    Honda is a good name to have on your resume but don’t waste your life here. The Honda family as it was once known, no longer exist, you will pay with your mind and body if not your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your ass "Go to the Spot", share in the associates "3 Joys"!

    Quit shooting down your people just because they know more than you! Take the time to walk in their shoes if only for a few minutes!

    Jumping in and helping a line associate will go a long way in improving your image!

    This is the worst management I've ever seen in my entire career at Honda! Rude, obnoxious, with a holier than thou attitude.

    Despite the fact that everyone wears the same uniform, it seems to me that the Japanese and American staff do not work together on same plan. Need to improve that.
