    Pros

    Nissan is one of the highest paying industrial jobs in the area. It's a stable position that offers decent benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Like all factory jobs, it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. There's not much room for moving up. There's a distinct pay and treatment difference between Nissan Employees and Yates (the onsite contractor) employees even though they do the exact same jobs.

    Advice to Management

    For the management who were once lower level workers, remember where you came from. Don't ask your employees to do things you know are against safety standards.

    A company cannot grow if the issues are not being fix.

    Pros

    Not much to brag about

    Cons

    Japanese top-down management and culture, too much red-tape, no room to drive change, very silo-ed approach. Not friendly for younger generations. Was forced to take on responsibilities of other resources and areas.

    Pros

    There are good reasons to work at Nissan as a contract employee, except for the money. No benefits, etc...

    Cons

    Treated like a second class citizen. No training or direction given. Terrible experience.

    Advice to Management

    No advice as long as contract employees are used in all facets of business. Short sighted.

    Pros

    The company has made significant effort to restore balance to hefty work challenges.

    Cons

    The company struggles to create an environment that develops internal capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    The company can accelerate its efficiency and effectiveness by better nurturing its current talent. Like its Japanese parent company, if NNA promoted broader functional experiences among its employees and better supported them in realizing their professional goals, it would get a more motivated and effective work force.

    Pros

    Good benefits (compared to other captive finance companies), great employee car leasing program, pockets of great management who really care about people.

    Cons

    Call center environment has many unhappy people due to work schedules; difficult to advance (more about who you know than what you know). Lacks diversity among upper mgmt; some progress in this regard, but still predominantly a "good ol' boys' club".

    Advice to Management

    Look first to promote from within; if the options are slim, ask yourselves "Why aren't we developing the talent we have?".
