    I have been working at Honda full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Job security. This company will take care of you in that aspect as long as you take care of it.
    -Pay. The pay is good...not great but good. Sure you could make more in Michigan but if you want to stay in central Ohio, the pay is good for this area.

    Cons

    Hours. As others have stated the hours can be long and brutal. Also, it is very hard to plan your personal life with these schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You already know what is wrong, have the courage to address it and fix it.
