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

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

    Pros

    Discontinued 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.

    Cons

    Certain 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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.

    Pros

    you 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.

    Cons

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

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Lisle, IL
    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Lisle, IL

    I have been working at Honda full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be 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!

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

    Pros

    There are some very nice, very hard-working people there. Pay is not good, but it's the best around in this lousy economy

    Cons

    1) Ignoring long-term temps and hiring off the street is a pathetic, inexcusable practice.
    2) Management appears to be "willfully stupid".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
