    Lofty business plans seem untealistic which may backfire in the stock market. Hghly leveraged corporate financial structure is also risky when things go south.

    Advice to Management

    Downsize product portfolio and focus on global efficiency.

    Pros

    It was a great starting point for entering the manufacturing industry. I learned a lot and was able to make contributions I was proud of.

    Cons

    First the pay, its the lowest of the Big 3. They pay straight time to salary for overtime hours worked and you have to work overtime to keep up with production numbers as well as completing projects as their is not enough time in a regular schedule. There is no meritocracy. They pick and choose who they want to move up rarely based on qualifications. Its a brown nose atmosphere. Not to mention they want you to embrace this WCM methodology which is alright but the decision makers don't. They make it impossible to put into use this methodology because they're stuck in their old ways. That is until audit season comes then they want to jam it down your throats and pretend they encourage it for score, then back to the same old thing. I see good hardworking people overlooked for idiots who stay in the bosses face and its sad. They also don't give salary employees profit share which sucks when your counterparts at the other companies do. Either way thanks for what I needed to move on. I just accepted an offer with the other guys,(GM).

    Advice to Management

    Become a meritocracy. Leave the good old boys club at home. It has no place in the workplace. Or anywhere for that matter. Also if you have no intention of moving someone up, stop blocking them from going to other places in the organization that does want to promote and utilize them. You're losing great talent from misusing and not given credit where its due and its a shame. I want to see you do well despite my leaving. I have friends and family there that depend on their income and careers from you guys.

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits, union

    Cons

    Everything else, hostile environment, long hours, soreness, boring repetitious work, not flexible in the least bit, strict attendance policy

    Advice to Management

    Consider your workers as people that still have lives and things to take care of out of work. Family, health, and peace of mind are things people need to keep up with to be productive at work.

    Pros

    The plant life is very exciting and can teach a young professional a lot about themselves and the automotive industry in a short amount of time. There is so much work to do it is easy to find a problem and create your own project to add value to the plant. It is unlike any other internship I hVe ever worked because I was challenged every day.

    Cons

    Plant life is very political, nobody is honest and there is constant backstabbing. Somebody could be very friendly to your face and you would have know idea they are talking badly about you behind your back. There is also a huge disconnect from corporate to the manufacturing plants. Policies and procedures get created without anybody fully researching how the changes will affect the plants. Also all of the company resources are allocated to the corporate facilities and the plant is left with employees working 70 hours a week and running on fumes. Often there is lack of support and zero communication between offices. In order to get anything done you must find your own way and jump through many hoops because nobody offers any assistance or information.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest to your employees and promote the good workers who are helping the company thrive. Cut out the employees who are a waste of resources and hold people accountable for their actions. Actually live continuous improvement instead of preaching it and being resistant to change.
