I worked at Nissan

Pros

Great learning experience. Everyone is very helpful and a lot of work is required, which in turn makes a great learning experience for any new engineers that are beginning their career in the automotive industry and any other industry.

Cons

One of benefits of working a lot is obtaining a lot of informaiton and experience, but at the same time, an engineer will be working a lot of hours to complete assignments. In turn, an engineer will have to sacrifice some of his/her personal time for work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is great direction and a great business structure. The open door/flat business heirarchy is beneficial in implementing changes. Be more aware of hours being worked by engineers to complete projects/jobs because there are a lot of hours being worked because some managers require them.

    Exhausting, soul destroying, dead end job. Managed by bullies who expect too much.

    I worked at Nissan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working the line causes forced weight loss. Salary is ok but poor for level of work expected clean working environment.

    Cons

    Micro managed by supervisors for petty things. Medical advice ignored by management following work related injuries. (Very common on trim) Can't get holidays off for anything as only one person can be off in 35 people team and always someone off sick through work related injury. Criticism for asking for toilet which they ask you if you need a number 1 or 2. Your allowed 2 minutes for number 1 and 5 for number 2 and they time you and record your toilet visit. Back pain, pain in knees. There is absolutely no career progression. The rare occasion someone gets team leader (usually supervisors mate / brown nose) The most skilled lads are left on hardest jobs sometimes for decades. No pay rise for promotion, they call it (standing in) and pay the same for up to 2 years and when your legally entitled to pay rise they stand you down and stand up the next mug. The easiest jobs are given out to people who brown nose. According to senior management your immediate supervisor can only give his staff 3/5 performance rating at the best since pay rise is related to performance. Most get 2/5. You spend the entire day running around to keep up and everyone under pressure. High pressure environment. Spending large parts of break getting back up line. Staff even refused holidays for funerals of grandparents. Being referred to as your station number. Work place politics. Propaganda pre pay deal. I could go on. Favouritism...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck when you have an entire zone of people who don't want to be there. Which is what I experienced along side a mass exodus of highly skilled experienced workers walking out.
