Current Employee - Senior Product Engineer  in  Saginaw, MI
Current Employee - Senior Product Engineer in Saginaw, MI

I have been working at Nexteer Automotive full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Interesting work, fast paced, ungodly amount of bookings, paid overtime for salary possible.

Cons

Salaries not as competitive as Southeastern Michigan for the same job. The company relies too much on signed paper copies slowing down internal processes. Under staffed for the amount of bookings. Struggling to become a high tech company (Electronic Power Steering) from a metal cutting company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fund your IT department to take the company to eSignitures and new processes to support the new eSignitures. This will increase your salary staff's efficiency. Stop quoting business without the approval/buy-in of the project team that would implement the project.

    Current Employee - Production/Assembly in Saginaw, MI

    I have been working at Nexteer Automotive full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coworkers and some good support staff (engineers), but they are understaffed.

    Cons

    Top heavy.
    Not really sure what management does, besides sit in meetings.
    Never follow through with what is talked about in those meetings.
    Communication is lacking.
    Want top production from machines that are 40+ years old, hard to get when management will not spend money to fix them.
    Management disregards the union contract that is in place (weak union).
    Management does not hold skilled trades accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look in the mirror, the problem might be right in front of you.

    I have been working at Nexteer Automotive full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great intellectual organization. Strong growth in certain areas of company. If you are from the Saginaw area, a good place to work

    Cons

    Lack of upper management direction. Poor HR organization. Often times conflicting messages are being sent. Chinese ownership has a lack of understanding of life cycle of automotive programs which is causing stress on organization. Concern going forward about work/life balance in certain areas of organization
