    Complicated corporate structure makes it very hard to get things done

    Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
    Plymouth, MI

    ProsThe people are mostly intelligent, ethical, and interesting. The pace and workload are generally reasonable. My manager pays a lot of attention to people development, and to building coalitions across organizational boundaries.

    ConsThe multipley-matrixed organization structure is hard to navigate, the Automotive Experience group is rather a poor stepchild within the larger corporate world, and the AE management focus is almost completely in terms of meeting monthly and quarterly financials. Pay scale is average or below for the industry; benefits also are average at best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider how the organization structural churn is inhibiting getting any real work done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Love the people culture, hate the business culture.

    Controller (Current Employee)
    Plymouth, MI

    ProsFlexible work environment. Good work-life balance. Carrying people. Lots of opportunities to learn, train and internally change careers.

    ConsNot run as a business should be. Too focused on personal growth and benefits. Very large company. Top heavy management. Integrity and transparency not really practiced.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave egos at front door.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ethical, well managed, diversified company with good work culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Plymouth, MI

    ProsWork culture, Ethical, Family values

    So far, not bad

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Plymouth, MI

    ProsInteresting work for the position, and managers who seem to be sincere in their support of personal and professional development. Company well-positioned in emerging markets. Flexible about work hours and work-from-home while remaining focussed on how employees can add value.

    ConsHR was somewhat obstructionist / rather rule bound. Salary offered was low for the industry, education and level of experience. Very difficult to maneuver to get things done, because the management hierarchy is so complex and responsibilities are unclear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management structure is so complex we spend more energy on internal coordination than on serving customers. That aspect is the biggest dis-satisfier and the biggest threat to our success.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
