    I worked at Honda part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation and working with schedule. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The breaks are also nice and there is a ping pong table and plenty of food prep/cooking equipment in the break room kitchen.

    Cons

    The actual work is boring, tedious and tiresome. The hours aren't the best either but really no choice when in school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great and extremely helpful.

    I worked at Honda as a contractor

    Pros

    Good co-workers, good company culture. Great engineers and designers to work with. I really enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    Long working hours. Sometimes difficult to work in multicultural corporate culture. There are not too many cons.

    I have been working at Honda full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Total compensation is pertty good because the benefits (both medical and retirement) are very good. Professional salaries are average for the region. Co-workers become a second family.

    Cons

    Professional associates spend a lot of time in meetings and you need to be able to "fight fires" and "grow the business" at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge the shift in expectations for today's professionals and increase flexibility.

    Pros

    None. Ohio engineering center is a jail full of idiots.

    Cons

    Bunch of freshly graduate engineering comunityes, with no understanding of vehicles design. They just blindly follow a process created 15 year ago, that is mo longer valid.
    Expect to work 60 hours in 5 day with 40 hours pay.
    Everithing is by the book . And the book is poorly done.
    Management flexibility is zero.
    Forget about the word Promotion.
    Never ever unless your Japanese from Japan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a look on the outside of the carbord box you're living inn.
    Engineers are not slaves. This is why manny leave in 3 years.

    Pros

    Competitive opportunity to make good money

    Cons

    Difficult fighting fellow employees for customers entering the parking lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with professional system so consultants are not blatantly fighting for customers. It's not a good look for the company/dealer.
