No opinion of CEO

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Very collegial place to work, with a real sense of mission. Lots of fun times there. Some excellent VP/C level managers who really know the industry and help people move around and broaden skills.

    Cons

    HR is horrible. They look for excuses to let people go, and encourage people to leave the company rather than try to work with them on their careers (I left for a better job elsewhere, was not broomed). Pay not comensurate with California real estate prices, or rest of industry.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure your HR team. Remember, they are there to fulfill payroll and benefits. They have no strategic function.
