    Former Intern - Powertrain Engineer

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are very willing to help
    Groups are very close-knit and there's a good sense of camaraderie
    Managers don't micro manage

    Cons

    Severe lack of testing facilities and equipment to meet demand
    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Auburn Hills, MI

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really nice people that work here, pay is decent, and I like the paid time off between Christmas and New years.

    Cons

    Management is totally inept and out of touch. It's virtually impossible to move around in the company unless they "know and like you". Performance appraisal process is a joke. Forced distribution using an antiquated 9 box methodology. You have some pretty big jerks in pretty high positions. The corporate culture needs to be redefined. The systems used there are a total joke. You will immediately go back to the 90s (or prior to). No one (read: management) is truly interested in operational efficiencies, it can be a lot of "paper pushing" or "busy work". Lots of time is being spent on things that don't really matter in the end, or broken processes that cannot be fixed. I wanted to work here because I WAS a huge fan of Chrysler products and after being here and seeing what junk they put in the cars these days....I probably will not buy another Chrysler product. I have worked here several years and can't even give the vehicle discounts that I get away....sad. Let's see how many years it takes for Fiat to drive Chrysler into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone is in a management position doesn't mean that they are trustworthy or good performers. Lots of managers are getting away with doing nothing (but taking credit for others work). There needs to be a culture change, invest in potential employees instead of playing the "good ol boys" game. Give employees a proper work-life balance. Expecting extra hours consistently with no pay is a ridiculous expectation, salaried or not. Try giving employees actual raises and get rid of the antiquated, forced distribution performance approval process.

    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.

    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.

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

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