    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.

    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

    Most people are very willing to help

    Some remnants of pre-bankruptcy culture remains, making it hard to get some things done
    Union has way too much power
    Meritocracy system is not evident

    Make the system actually work on a meritocracy like you said and try harder to keep talent.
