    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Overtime pay. You always know what your pay will be because everyone makes the same amount of money. Uniforms. No need to ruin your own clothes.

    Cons

    Recently a lot of overtime on weekends. 30 minutes overtime on week days. Equipment breakdowns. Employes who do subpar work make the same amount of money as excellent workers. Whiners get off of the hard jobs and the hard workers have to pick up the slack. Assembly is extremely hot in the summer. Uniforms do not breathe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who do the processes before changing the way things are done. All plants should have the same standars. If one plant requires sleeves to be down and snapped, they all should. Get cooler uniforms.

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg.

    Pros

    Team-focused environment, wearing a uniform every day saves time, saves money, and allows all associates to be treated equally, ample break time

    Cons

    pay structure is very flat, not a lot of advancement opportunities, associates tend to get 'stuck' in certain departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employees should be promoted based on merit, not only on length of employment, pay structure should not be as flat to encourage associates' performance

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg.

    Pros

    If you're a young engineer - especially one without a family - it's a great place to go and work a ton of overtime and get paid for it. They have recently introduced newer technology in both the manufacturing and design areas, which is exciting.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is horrible. Working at Honda is a lifestyle, not a job or career. If you have children in school - be accustomed to missing events and missing holidays with your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find a way to better balance work and family life with exempt associates. Often times, the hourly production workers are much better 'taken care of' than management / technical staff. There has recently been a push - especially within HAM - to reduce overhead manpower. That is understandable, but the methods for doing so are leading to a culture where those who you don't want to leave (the younger, more efficient staff) are leaving and those you don't want to stay (the more experienced, more costly, less effective staff) are staying.
