    Pros

    - The work environment is great. Most people are excellent team players and is really easy and enjoyable working with them.
    - I have never had better managers than in FCA, they really care for your career growth.
    - The balance between work and personal life is great, they really respect your private time.
    - FCA is full of knowledgeable people so you can speed up your learning curve.
    - The mobility within FCA is good, if you decide to take a different career path is possible to interview with different groups and eventually move.
    - if you devote a few time to be part of the ERG's your internal network can grow exponentially.
    - The benefit package is very competitive.

    Cons

    - One of the downsides is that the pay is average at best. Getting a raise is almost impossible once you negotiated your initial salary.
    - The career path is almost non-existent you need a LOT of effort to forge your own.

    Advice to Management

    In my experience management is great (at least within chassis). I'd just say keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Emphasizes work and life balance, close knit culture, provides plenty of opportunities for employees to turnover departments and experience many facets of the automotive world.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better, while pay is good. Expected hours to put in can be cumbersome, although most salary jobs are this way. Also, company has historical instability but right now seems like a safe place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Management could be more transparent on what their expectations for employees are, leadership can be exemplified in many different ways.
