    I worked at Fiat full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They will finally have an interesting product portfolio in a few years. I hope it brings back hope and motivation.

    Cons

    I worked at the HQ in one of the European country.
    Management was very poor. The rating system didn't leave any space for discussion. I felt like the company didn't have any vision on the long term, and was changing plans and strategy everyday. Employees were always working under stressful conditions, trying to follow up with executive's always changing strategies.
    Many talentuous employees and manager had already left the company, and many remaining managers were not skilled enough to do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more employee appreciation
    When needed, don't hesitate to get rid of bad managers. It will end up less expensive than loosing motivation, commitment, and ultimately... employees

    Pros

    It is big company with a lot of opportunities to advance and to learn. Moving through departments gives employe a chance to see big picture and doesn't allow employe to stay in comfort zone for too long.

    Cons

    HQ insisting on certain things and not having sense for local market. Young division with not fully established departments and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To try to reduce business based on connections inside the company and to turn it to more professional employe behavior.

    Pros

    Nice colleagues and good environment.lower level colleagues work and do all the job.
