    Pros

    The money is great for a hourly wage! Work environment is pretty clean and overall safety is fairly good. Overtime is pretty much always available.

    Cons

    You have to be on the buddy system to get promoted and management likes to enforce rules that they can't even follow.

    Advice to Management

    Communication!! Communication!! And respect for the individual!! Practice what you preach!! If their out to get you watch your back!!

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pay is good for the responsibility level and Columbus area.

    Cons

    Flat corporate structure. Some promoted based on length of service instead of on merit, but this is changing for the better. Performance review is sort of a joke. Ratings are determined before review is submitted. Your rating is based more on what fits you into the budget than your actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Management direction seems to constantly change, pick a strategy and stay with it long enough to implement.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (401k, health insurance, profit sharing bonus), opportunities for great work experience to start your career. People that work that are intelligent and fun to work with.

    Have to work a 2nd shift every couples months. The work schedule is fairly inflexible and you sometimes have to work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management did a very good job. There needs to be a better solution for work flexibility for Engineers.

    Pros

    Excellent sense of community, good culture, and nice office. There is a sense of working towards the same goal and all within the three mottos of honda: joy, respect and innovation.

    Cons

    The community is lacking in an work ethic. Everyone does the minimum to get by. The systems used by Honda are really aged and lack in efficiency, but the office makes them to be the latest. Everyone complains about their job and acknowledges there is a retention problem.

    Advice to Management

    Work to inspire the workforce and continue to innovate through the use of new technology. Make the place an environment that attracts younger crowds that push business to be more efficient
