    I have been working at Nexteer Automotive

    Pros

    Nexteer Automotive cares about their employees and they are consistently trying to find ways to improve.

    Cons

    The downside of Nexteer is that they have a lot of contract positions and it can sometimes be difficult to get promoted to a salaried position.

    I worked at Nexteer Automotive full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to learn the entire assembly process of making EPS systems. Not just one area. Machining and assembly. Good knowledge for future positions.

    Cons

    Still had some of the GM/Delphi mentality. Took a very long time to get things reviewed and approved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on streamlining the approval process

    I worked at Nexteer Automotive

    Pros

    A lot of work to do - always busy (but that could be a con as well - company takes "do more with less" to the extreme); people are great to work with - family environment; no micromanaging

    Cons

    They discriminate; no room for promotion; facility is very old and dirty; computer systems are very old; employees are very underpaid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin some type of raise system - employees need something to work toward

    I have been working at Nexteer Automotive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good group of people to work with within programs.

    Cons

    No room for upward growth. Uneven work loads. Sporadic international travel. Pay not competitive with markets in Auburn Hills/Troy/Detroit area. Facility is ugly and depressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they're worth so you will stop losing engineers to jobs in southern Michigan/Detroit Metro area. Provide opportunities for career development and personal growth. Provide somewhere to go outside that is not paved and dirty.

    I have been working at Nexteer Automotive as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to branch out into different aspects of Mechanical, Computer and Industrial Engineering. Gives you the chance to explore into new areas, and find a specialty that you like and want to grow in,

    Cons

    Work could be a little more challenging. The more senior you are, the more you get the chance to get creative.
