    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

    Great work environment, supportive staff, great pay. Staff were very knowledgeable and always assisted employees in completing their task, especially management.

    Cons

    Early work hours, due to the strict guidelines and timelines as to how many cars needed to be built.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great, no complaints. Hiring more interns may be better as it will show students how great of a company it is, and encourage them to work there in the future.

    Pros

    Even as an intern, I was treated with respece and given projects that would be given to any other full time employee. Management cared that I enjoyed my work and was learning, and was always open to providing help. Great learning and growing experience, especially if cars are your passion. Being immersed and interested in the automotive world makes this job far more enjoyable, and management makes a point of involving employees with the product to maintain their interest. Take advantage of the many opportunities Chrysler will throw your way; they are well worth your time.

    Cons

    Chrysler (FCA) is a very large company, which can make integration difficult at times. Learning how to find the right person to talk to or what database to search for what is challenging. As with any large company, there are a wide range of personalities to work with, which can be good or bad. If you live near Headquaters, you will have to drive to find anything fun to do after hours, though Detroit and Ann Arbor are great places to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work HR!
