I worked at Mazda North American Operations

Pros

If its located close to where you live, you want to drive a mazda or just want some experience in the car business Mazda is for you.

Cons

The management of the company is all hat and no horse. The CMO can talk a good game but excels at politics. Its a bit of a snake den so be open eyed and watch anyone one who has worked there for more than 5 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You talk a good game but don't really execute the plan. You have a couple of rouge team members who need to go back to military school and learn leadership.

    Pros

    Exciting industry, small enough of a company to be exposed to multiple departments and projects. The employees are some of the best you will find anywhere.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management. Vision and direction is often lacking. Poor co-operation between divisions to the point that multiple groups can be working on similar projects at the same time and create conflicts.

    I have been working at Mazda North American Operations

    Pros

    Great brand with good products. Wonderful benefits package, including car benefits and vacation time. Management is very informative with company's performance.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive with other local companies within and outside of the same industry. Benefits only compensate for part of that difference. Very little is done by HR to encourage growth, you're pretty much on your own (including any outside networking, training, seminars, etc.. no budget).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to make employees proud to work for Mazda. Sometimes the cost cutting hurts morale and give employees the impression they're the next to go.
