    Pros

    Vacation and personal time is supported by management. There is good job security if you are hired direct. The company treats their direct employees very well.

    Cons

    When you are not considered on vacation, the hours can be very long.

    Pros

    Actively working to improve the internal vehicle development systems. A lot of opportunity to learn the business in many different disciplines.

    Cons

    No work / life balance. The time between merit increases is significantly long. No 401K match. Advancement opportunities are limited after bankruptcy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start compensating the employee soon. Good people have already left and more still to follow.

    It's ok. Nothing special. If you can pay for an education, get one, if not this is as good as it gets.

    Pros

    CTC is easily accessible from mist freeways.

    Cons

    Old style management, all the dinosaurs and their thinking, actions and attitudes are alive and well in Powertrain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intelligence has no color, women are more than objects. Get rid of the non-performing oppressive managers. Make quality and integrity apart of meritocracy instead of office politics.

    Pros

    I like the campus, - it has beautiful architecture and allows many departments in one building, which is nice if you are part of cross-functional team. Pay is OK, benefits are pretty good. Some really nice people work here.

    Cons

    Some really NOT nice people work here as well. The place is drowning in politics, especially after the Italian take over. People get promoted based on friendship, not based on skills/ contribution. There is no clear vision or solid structure. People are purposely given overlapping responsibilities, which creates chaos and frustration. If you are lucky and have a decent manager, then you might be somewhat happy at work; otherwise, you are miserable. And there are MANY miserable people here...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your action where your words are. We hear wonderful things and promises from podiums and TV screens, but your actions say something totally else...
