    Great learning environment for engineering students.

    Engineering Co-Op (Current Employee) East Liberty, OH

    ProsHonda provides a mentor who thoroughly trains you in a realistic position solving problems and enhancing the company with true deliverables.

    ConsPlacement is determined by the talent management staff through the co-op program (interns do not apply for a specific assignment).

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe flexible with co-ops: when I arrived my mentor realized where my talents were and gave me specific tasks where I could be challenged and find success. A rigid assignment would not have been nearly as beneficial for myself or my team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Tough manufacturing climate

    Engineering Coordinator (Current Employee) Marysville, OH

    ProsGood pay Hours are strict, must work when they tell you. Office environment is from the 60's
    Good benefits
    Good pension

    ConsNo opportunity or promotion unless you are connected. Or you must have a college degree.
    No further training once hired unlike Honda R&D

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management (SE + AM and above) shuts themselves off to lower staff. Private meetings and secret agendas

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

    The best IT job I have ever had.

    PC Services (Current Employee) East Liberty, OH

    ProsAs an IT professional working at Honda is extremely versatile. Its never a dull moment. One minute I could be working on a computer back in the lab, the next minute is my time to shine, fixing and IT issue that keeps the manufacturing process going.

    ConsThe commute is close to an hour. Thinking about moving closer to the plant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is doing a fine job, thank you.

    You're a Hondroid - which means you are disposable

    Honda Associate (Former Employee) East Liberty, OH

    ProsWhen I started in 1997 the Japanese ran the company, the place ran like a well-oiled machine. It was always right man, right job. Benefits and pay were good.

    ConsAmericans took over, now no one knows what they're doing, you get the job if you kiss booty, no loyalty to me as an exemplary employee. I had 15 years perfect attendance, was moved to different departments because I would encourage and "fix" the department, and constantly told what a good employee I was... until I tore my shoulder on-line. They threw me away like trash.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit paying the attorneys and Private Investigators to try and "catch" me doing something wrong... and use that money to fix my shoulder so I can get well and get back to work!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Going down hill at an alarming rate

    Equimpment Service (Current Employee) Anna, OH

    ProsStable job
    Decent benefits
    Good vacation policy

    ConsRampant confusion and mismanagement at department levels
    Inconsistent application of policies, many decisions bases on hidden favoritism
    No rules, only "guidelines"
    Everything subject to business needs clause
    The motto seems to be "Ignorance is bliss and the truth is not welcome"
    People live in fear of failure more than anticipation of success

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much time spent with form instead of function, stop worrying about having all your charts and graphs looking pretty and start paying attention to the core business of making cars.

    Stop punishing the innovators

    Perfecctly mediocre

    Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee) Marysville, OH

    ProsGood people, set responsibilities, major projects for intern.

    ConsDay to day activities were VERY repetitive. Open cubicle area made it feel like I had no privacy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Engineering Coordinator (Current Employee) Marysville, OH

    ProsYou have real responsibilities. Projects are meaningful and you get to see them through from start to finish, which is very rewarding. There are constant challenges with new vehicle designs, manufacturing problems, factory renovations, etc. It's a fast paced workplace that rarely has you feeling bored.

    ConsNot all areas are as exciting as others. Some jobs can be very monotonous and repetitive since this is a mass production factory. However, the company is big, so there are usually opportunities to try out something else that might interest you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow employees to rotate through various areas within the company so they can understand and appreciate the complexity and interdependence of all of our functions. It will open their eyes and help them perform better within their own roles.

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