    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

    Pros

    Lots of individual decision making, lots of responsibility and chances to make decisions.

    Cons

    Large office, no much chance for promotion, very manufacturing orientated workplace. Mid level management doesn't do much, more babysitting than actually responsibility, which is passed onto lower level associates.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives, more reason to do a "better" job, not promoted because of how long you've sat in chair rather how much you've accomplished.


  8. Not the same company I hired into

    Pros

    Stable job
    Decent benefits
    Good vacation policy

    Cons

    Rampant 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 Management

    Too 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

    Pros

    Good people
    Exciting work
    Opportunities to learn

    Cons

    Slow decision making process
    Limited opportunity to advance
    Micro-managers

    Advice to Management

    Start with the basic organizational structure and start over. Stop pandering to mediocrity and start looking at the select few employees that are carrying the load. Keep them happy, you can easily replace the rest. Stop promoting solely on the basis of technical skill and look for people with the vision and charisma to be LEADERS.
