    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.

    Honda was a great place to start my career, but not somewhere I saw myself working for the long haul.

    Pros

    Honda has a fantastic benefits package and great vacation time. They treat their employees well. I had a great, friendly relationship with the other individuals on my team.

    Cons

    This location is in the middle of nowhere, far from any large city. I found it difficult to earn respect from my Japanese counterparts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation was very low in relation to other engineering jobs on the market.

    Pros

    Great coworkers for a young crowd. For those looking to settle down, this company offers great long term job security as long as you aren't too ambitious for advancement. Good benefits as well.

    Cons

    Yearly pay increases are typically below inflation. Promotions have very little to do with ability and more to do with tenure. Senior management often tell you that you are important, but rarely do they show it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End the revolving door. You are bleeding talent and losing valuable knowledge as they leave after 5 years. It should be cheaper to keep talent than to recruit, relocate, and train new bodies.

    Great co-op experience

    I worked at Honda

    Pros

    Honda R&D has a GREAT co-op program. Well, "had" a great co-op program. Word has it that they've ditched it in this automotive market downturn. I had a great experience there and learned a lot about mechanical engineering.

    Cons

    The co-op program is now gone. If they reinstate it, I would HIGHLY recommend applying. But the location is terrible. Ohio? C'mon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the co-op program! It's valuable!

    Overall a good place to start off, but the "revolving doors" are an indication that this is not necessarily a place you

    I have been working at Honda

    Pros

    Honda is an amazing company to work for. You can learn a lot from the expertise of those above you, and there is much to learn that you can either use at Honda or at another company to bring real value to their organization. The people are generally very supportive and see each other as "teammates" instead of opponents. This is why such quality product comes from this R&D center.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty marginal (even though they claim that it is competitive). Growth can seem slow if you don't embody exactly what your superiors want, but they don't make what they want very clear necessarily.

    Work can sometimes be very overwhelming, and if it weren't for the paid overtime, the high expectations that are put on the associates could never be met.
