I have been working at Nummi

Pros

Good job security, fast-paced environment, can (usually) always stay busy, neat factory environment, Toyota experience, great immediate supervisor (lucky), a lot of young engineers

Cons

Extremely long lead time to substantial promotion, sub-par compensation, low challenge, office with no windows, lack of communication between departments, management VERY resistant to change, does not encourage higher education, expensive cafeteria with sub-par food, UAW

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to keep engineers for more than just a few years; the "revolving door" (as quoted by our GM) needs to stop, and management needs to think outside the box on this one.

    OK place to work if you have no other life, or obligations to distract your focus on the job.

    I worked at Nummi

    Pros

    Only car plant in California, will probably be shutting down soon since all the lazy union employees are just sitting around exploting the system of senority and barely contributing to a friendly, enjoyable environment for everyone. But I did enjoy getting to learn how toyota works and the insider knowledge that will probably prove to be invaluable to my career. Also, no 2 days are ever the same, it's like be a cop, but you have to solve crimes that pertain to quality.

    Cons

    Long hours, stress, no management support. Lazy workers doing the minimum to scrape by. No time to take a vacation. Management is either too overcontrolling or just plain swamped and bogged down by unneccessary items that are not really their responsibility, but have no problem handing the issue down to lower ranks and letting them deal with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to talk with other managers instead of sending lower level employees to be your puppets. Provide better training and lead by example, not throw someone under the bus and then try to offer help when it is way too late.

    I worked at Nummi

    Pros

    Only Auto industry outside the mid west. good fist job, and excellent co-workers. Lots of opportunity to learn about different manufacturing processes. Good place for a manufacturing engineer.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor compensation, very poor management. Working for a union organization is VERY frustrating, and tiresome. An engineer is programed to try and solve simple and complex issues, and NUMMI continually blocks the process by treating their engineers as 3rd class, below the line workers and management. Not a place for a MEchanical engineer as the word is completely non-technical and requires only basic engineering knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your employees and empower them. Lower management is very self centered, and unaware of their teams abilities and hard work.

    No opinion of CEO
