    Great experience for intern student

    Industrial Designer (Former Employee) Holland, MI

    ProsGreat company and co-workers. They are really supportive and giving. When I had internship in advance design studio, I got involved to their projects. They listen to your project and give great advice. It's good for student first step into the real industry.

    ConsI've been in Holland Mi. It's quiet and small town near Lake Michigan. I think it's bad for a designer. As a designer, I would rather stay in a big city, that world trend and info will be easy to reach. I would love to have more trendy things in my daily life.

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

    Tough time working as an engineer for

    Senior Product Engineer (Former Employee) Holland, MI

    ProsThe people are great and will help work through any issues that come up. Day to day interactions are friendly and there is a great support community. There is a lot of movement in the organization so there is some opportunity for advancement, but you really have to work for it.

    ConsThe leadership is very strongly focused on financial metrics and operations focus. There is not much of a bottom up approach to getting things done the right way. It is a struggle to get focus on technology and the correct technical solutions to problems. There are directives pushed down and a constant drive to be more budget focused and cost effective and to stay on schedule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake this a better place to work for the people. They are motivated, but they need to be inspired to get the best out of them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Experience, Good Company

    Quality Engineer (Former Employee) Holland, MI

    ProsGood pay, benefits and perks. Big company, with lots of opportunities. You can learn a lot in a very short amount of time, everyday there is something different or new to work on. Fast paced environment, things move pretty quickly. I really liked the people I worked with, which made the job that much better. People are friendly and actually hang out after work. It's in a good location. Enjoyed going to work everyday, actually kind of miss it!

    ConsHR is slow to hire and get paperwork done. Some overtime is required during certain times. We worked some Saturdays, but got paid for the overtime so not a big deal. Can be stressful at times which may be a con for some people, but I enjoyed it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the fundamental quality principals that are in place and actually enforce them. Things would improve greatly if the enforcement came from the top down. Follow through on promises. Earn the respect of the employees.

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

    Product engineer in interiors group.

    Product Engineer (Current Employee) Holland, MI

    ProsLower management cares about employees and tries to maintain a small company feel. Numerous positions within the organization so you may be able to transfer to another group to try something new.

    ConsAutomotive division is in flux with electronics being sold, visors & headliners being sold, and a joint venture happening soon for interiors. Many people are nervous about losing their job or the Holland facility closing. Although this can happen at any company, many people are anxious about not knowing the future of the Holland campus.

    Numerous levels of upper management with people or structure changing every 1 to 2 years. Company has a "large company" feel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut some layers of upper management. Stop reorganizing. Pick a structure and stick to it.
