    Very helpful as far as finding my own way

    Co-Op/Intern (Current Employee) Tallapoosa, GA

    ProsIt is very laid back environment and everyone is very understanding with the time frames for bulky projects.

    Consdon't see much opportunity to really grow
    also very few references for information concerning software development in house

    Advice to Senior Managementdocumentation of what a new associate should become familiar with would help with bringing anyone up to speed. I am still asking what do they call certain equipment and their different processes so that my projects will be more effective, but learning the process in the middle of a project slows the project down and could lead to misconceptions if the process is explained in a rushed manner.

    Arrogant....and lost

    Assistant Manager (American Honda Corporate Headquarters) (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    ProsDiscontinued employee pensions but, according to a senior executive, "Honda's decision wasn't as bad as that of other companies?"
    Still have health benefits.....for now.

    ConsCertain vital administrative functions are denigrated and de-resourced to the point of nonexistence.
    Spending half a billion dollars on HondaJet. Good luck making a profit on that...
    Spending hundreds of millions on F1...again.
    Obsolete enterprise systems patched together with standalone spreadsheets makes effective project management and coordination virtually impossible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't have a clue what your business is or how valuable the few loyal (to the company, not to the did functional management) employees are. Focusing on metrics instead of productive and necessary activities while cutting resources is a recipe for failure.

    Competitive and hard work

    Salesperson (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    Prosyou can make a LOT of money very fast if you are willing to work for it. Commission based = the harder you work the better the results in your pocket.

    ConsVery competitive which equals to fighting amongst your coworkers for those customers. Hours are very long. Lots of outdoor work. requires a certain personality

    Quite an "interesting" place to work..

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Lisle, IL

    ProsGood compensation in the "busy" months (December and April through August).
    Personable coworkers and friendly atmosphere
    Excellent customers who will give you referrals if they like you.

    ConsLong hours, long days. Some days up to 12 hour shifts with 30 minute break or less
    Very little money made in the "slow" months (winter is rough!)
    Angry customers every once in a while
    No room for growth into a new position - just growth in your own position

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a leader to your employees, not just a boss. Show them where they can improve and let them know what they're doing well at. Only way to grow is with guidance!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
