25 yrs with Honda, watched it go from a great company to a poorly run company.

Current Employee - Assembly Associate  in  East Liberty, OH
Current Employee - Assembly Associate in East Liberty, OH

Pros

Job security up to now.
Very good pay and benefits so far.
In the beginning you were the expert and decentralized management was the philosophy. Now centralized management is the way.
Safety, Quality and the customer was the goal, now only Quantity.

Cons

Very hard and physical work.
The Honda philosophy is dead and forgotten.
Management has no clue as to how to run this company efficiently.
Moral is worse than I have ever seen it.
All tools used by the associates (suggestions, quality etc.) have been so diluted they are worthless.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn and understand the Honda philosophy!
Stop finding the blame and find the problems.
Quality costs nothing!
Listen to the experts.
Solve the problem don't band-aid it!
Advancement from within is very slight.

    Current Employee - Production  in  East Liberty, OH
    Current Employee - Production in East Liberty, OH

    Pros

    - Pay
    - You do get medical benefits......but they are being reduced.
    - On site wellness center.............if you have the time or energy to go.

    Cons

    - Hard Physical Labor
    - Long daily hours. Some departments at Engine plant are 7 days mandatory
    - You get 15 days vacation but on average 15 weekends are taken away by forced mandatory production. No real benefit here!
    - Most job injuries are disputed by the company forcing the employee to fight for the benefits deserved
    - No job security for those with many years of service. Jobs are being contracted out on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Start talking to the employees that have put many years in making the company what it was!
    - Promote people based on experience, knowledge and training, not on who you know.

    Current Employee - Production Associate in East Liberty, OH

    Pros

    Get to talk to your co-workers during the work day.

    Cons

    Monotonous, mind-numbing, work; low wages; no advancement; your life belongs to Honda - family, school, outside interests - say "Adios, Amigos!"; 6 day work weeks common (and after a while, time and a half is not very motivating); most of staff is contingency - don't even THINK of being hired on as a Honda associate, and that is the only way to earn a good wage here; benefits STINK! Don't even THINK about getting sick. Keep a close eye on your paycheck each week......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Who is running this circus?? The "new robots" we have can't be fixed, and you're getting more new ones?? I'll never see the end of a work day!!
