I worked at Mazda North American Operations full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

For the most part, there are a lot of good people at Mazda.
The products are good.
The company car benefits are a plus!

Cons

The culture, by far, is the biggest negative of the company. It's cronyism at it's worst and I agree with a previous post that it's "who you know", not "what you know".
Overall, the leadership at the company is very weak and becasuse people are promoted based on "friends and relationships", the real talent within the organization doesn't get promoted. That's why such a high percentage of people took the recent voluntary buy out package.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote based on talent and who's most deserving. By continuing to promote managers that do not demonstrate leadership, you are erroding the morale and overall talent base of the company. Institue a 360 of all managers....find out what's really going on within the organization and take your heads out of the sand!

    Pros

    Winter shut down for a week.

    Weekends off.

    Cons

    No offense to the janitors but they can do a better job than many of the managers and executives at Mazda.
    Horrible HR department > does not promote employee development opportunities.
    Everyone is about covering their own behinds, you can't trust anyone here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your head and grow some.

    Pros

    Great Benifits, Family to work - 8 and out

    Zero Training. HR is in California and does not participate AT ALL in Flat Rock unless they have to.

    Engage more with the employees and try not to be so arrogant
