Pros

Lear is a well run global corporation. Upper management does a good job of managing a lean operation and growing the company's business operations. Lear has an excellen IT department.

Cons

Lear is not as flexible as it could be when it comes to flex-time and working from home. A more progressive approach could mean happier and more productive employees who have more tools to balance career and family responsibilities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider flex-time to accommodate employees' family responsibilities. Consider giving employees more opportunities for tele-commuting.

    Pros

    The pace at which you are expected to work and perform is relentless, as much a factor of the automotive components industry as it is the Lear culture. If you accept it and work with it, it will prepare you for whatever other endeavors you may undertake in your career and, quite possibly, your personal life.

    Cons

    The behavior and demeanor of many of the executives, at some of the locations, are, at times, less than professional in front of other employees and subordinates, never in front of the customers. This does not promote a satisfying work environment, much less a proffesional one. Also, process is often sacrificed in the name of expediency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is great opportunity in finding a way to adhere to process without the loss of being expedient.
