    Pros

    Solid company. Great for Ohio.

    Cons

    The auto business is incredibly competitive, far more than most people would suspect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the factory. That keeps quality rolling. All work areas are important but none as much as the plant floor.

    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 Management

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