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

    Pros

    Stable work. Friendly atmosphere. This is primarily a Windows development shop, but AIX, AS400, MVS, and some Mac application development.

    Cons

    Technology is not leading edge. Very conservative adopting new IT technology. IBM is primarily used for backend support. IBM India needs to improve responsiveness and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Responsiveness to business needs is highest priority. More career opportunities would be great.

    I worked at Honda as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    umm...thinking. Plant closed on Christmas and 4th of July is about it.

    Cons

    Mandatory 6 days a week. 10+ hour shifts. Very low pay compared to rest of country. Most people try to get a job there in Lincoln , Al because its the only job around,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less temps and more perm employees. Give them decent family time. Your employees can only survive on OT.

    Pros

    Great team but hard to communicate. On site sushi chef

    Cons

    Old timer are too old time to accept new things. AHM, HAM and AHFC are all in power conflict on who will gets what. Manager thought they are doing you a favor on giving you a job???? What were they thinking??? It is a mutual relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you decide to bring in new blood, please give them guidance not just dump them on the job and wish it works out. Honda basically exist because of a group on die had Honda fans.

    I have been working at Honda for less than a year

    Pros

    *Good pay for the work
    *Good benefits (I hear)
    *Managers who look out for employees--sickness, emergency, dissatisfied with job/policy
    *Clean office

    Cons

    *The nature of the work can be repetitive and trivial
    *Waaaaaay strict about attendance, but they have to be because of the call center environment
    *Don't hire associates as frequently as they could. Most people who work here are temps and can be dismissed with little or no notice, so it's not as reliable.
    *Mandatory overtime during crazy periods

    I worked at Honda full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. They make a good product but have manufacturing problems they should have resolved by now. Well known name and quality.

    Cons

    Don't ever work in Accounting. Work area may have Carbon Monoxide contamination. Very strict work conditions and structure. Can't miss much work for any reason the first year or you will get fired. Poor training and management communication. People are overloaded in their jobs. Bad moral. Too much stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to train people so they have a chance. Don't know what you are doing. Upgrade software. Simplify processes.

    I have been working at Honda as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Steady pay check, stable hours

    Cons

    I worked for Honda for over a year after being there for six months they moved me to another temp service and I never had gotten hired in. After being there for over a year I was let go . No future really no direction or incentive to work harder the pay is not competive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management could try harder to help people instead of using temp services and let them get hired in. I would not recommend this place to a friend
