    A company that have you as a third party contracted and treats you like a employee, for sure is a best in class company.

    Internal Audit Consultant (Former Employee) Guarulhos (Brazil)

    ProsRelationship with coleagues and supervisor, makes you feel comfortable when providing work feedback one to each other. Balanced staff between young and experienced employee assures feets in ground and inovation in the work, as well as the chance to have culture interchange by participating in other countries activities, to enhance personal relationship capacity.

    ConsAll the staff has to be trained to be prepared for continuing effectiveness enhancement to work towards cost reduction. Due to the pressure form major suppliers and custommers, the company still has to find more effectiveness in changing the products at a fair value. That's when the company needs culture enhancement and improve leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe new company is still in troubled waters to have all the different management culture and employees realtioship at the same page. However, basic values should not be abandomned

    Challenging, good experience, lots of hours

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsChallenging environment, lots of good employees, HR group was well managed. Employees are encouraged and expected to implement ideas for improvement etc. Pay was very competitive with excellent benefits and bonuses (might have changed since then)

    ConsA very challenging financial environment, expect to work insane amount of hours at any level. Burnout tends to impact employee morale

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clean business model and focus on areas that are profitable while dumping capital intensive ventures that operate poorly

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall, great place to work. Good opportunites for staff development and growth opportunities.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery competent leadership team and director level executives.
    Good work environment with support for flexible work arrangements.
    Ability to work with top management.
    Opportunities for international travel.
    Excellent developmental opportunities.
    Ability to contribute and make a difference.
    Highly competitive salary package and bonus plan.

    ConsAutomotive industry is stressed and very competitive.
    Big pressure on reducing costs including layoffs and history of salary and benefit reductions - although still better than the industry overall.
    As staffing is reduced, hours worked get longer.
    U.S. operations becoming more administrative with most of the production being overseas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in employees and do not abandon the Topgrading approach. Do not cut back on travel for midlevel staff. Face to face meetings are essential. Refocus on employee development plans.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
