    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg.

    Pros

    It's a really friendly work environment if you make it that way. They really take care of they're interns from relocation expenses to housing. The work in parts quality would probably lean more towards the business side of engineering. Responsibilties consist of containment of parts issues and working with parts suppliers to find countermeasures. No one is going to hold your hand though, you have to be self motivated and find work. It's a great place to make what you want out of it. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Little direction at first, felt like I was being tested to see how self motivated I was. Not a lot of engineering knowledge required. Can get redundant at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more direction to new hires to get the ball rolling per say.

    Pros

    Good job security and professional environment to work in. Great exposure to the Honda Way and Honda's philosophy. Benefits are a definite plus.

    Cons

    Organizationally flat structure which can make movement within the company tough at some times. Many old associates retiring which could cause a knowledge gap from loss of experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage young engineers within company.

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company provides you the opportunity to grow with the company. The medical benefits, 401k and vacation are one of the best.

    Cons

    One of the downsides at times working for Honda is the amount of overtime, which is necessary to get your job done. You are compensated for it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to be aware of the younger associates an their lack of providing clear direction.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The plant is in Marysville

    Cons

    I am taken by the lack of discipline Honda claims nobody has. I can hear cars and people spouting the mouth from where I live. The Airbag recalls were almost the same issue back in 2011. They knew, they had Airbags but it took somebody from their supplier to get them figured out. Honda has had IPAAR on these same issues, yet they stand around talking about who they think is freshly no abiding to the talk, drama, gossip, and nonsense that is going on around them. Over a million people already have defective cars. Next time somebody calls me for an investigation wanting to see documentation I am showing it to them. I and everybody else is tired of putting in hard work to get these issues taken care of, and Honda just comes of like they knew it all along, like it was a grand plan to let all those defective parts get out, and then take care of them, and tell others how freshly right they are. Get a life, and stop these problems the first time for God sake, it doesn't take the news to know that even if you have a supplier that you must account for every part that leaves your door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm bringing my car to the plant next time it messes up. The Honda 3rd Reich is bringing down Americans now.
