    Very secured job. Having Honda helps with being on your resume

    Cons

    No job growth potential, Doesn't give employees a good discount for cars like other car companies. Too many hours.

    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.

    I worked at Honda as a contractor (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

    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.

    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 (less than an 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

    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.
