    I worked at Nissan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working the line causes forced weight loss. Salary is ok but poor for level of work expected clean working environment.

    Cons

    Micro managed by supervisors for petty things. Medical advice ignored by management following work related injuries. (Very common on trim) Can't get holidays off for anything as only one person can be off in 35 people team and always someone off sick through work related injury. Criticism for asking for toilet which they ask you if you need a number 1 or 2. Your allowed 2 minutes for number 1 and 5 for number 2 and they time you and record your toilet visit. Back pain, pain in knees. There is absolutely no career progression. The rare occasion someone gets team leader (usually supervisors mate / brown nose) The most skilled lads are left on hardest jobs sometimes for decades. No pay rise for promotion, they call it (standing in) and pay the same for up to 2 years and when your legally entitled to pay rise they stand you down and stand up the next mug. The easiest jobs are given out to people who brown nose. According to senior management your immediate supervisor can only give his staff 3/5 performance rating at the best since pay rise is related to performance. Most get 2/5. You spend the entire day running around to keep up and everyone under pressure. High pressure environment. Spending large parts of break getting back up line. Staff even refused holidays for funerals of grandparents. Being referred to as your station number. Work place politics. Propaganda pre pay deal. I could go on. Favouritism...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck when you have an entire zone of people who don't want to be there. Which is what I experienced along side a mass exodus of highly skilled experienced workers walking out.

    maybe salary.
     international environment.

    No information sharing or storage.
    A lot of hires are dumm by their nature, they do not understand the processes. Hard to work with those people.

    Pros

    On-site gym and child care center.

    Cons

    We are all asked to produce more with less resources. Quality of work suffers when quantity is demanded. Customer service related departments have an extensive training course before the employees begin their work. Other more technical areas have no training course and the staff are expected to train each other with minimal managerial input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management promotions don't work when the new manager lacks knowledge or experience in the new department. Mentor your subordinates.

    The staff with a "can-do" attitude are loaded with work while the work-shy manage to avoid big projects / tasks.
    Insufficient funds made available for projects.
    Ageing plant and equipment - too much asked of 20 year old + equipment.
    Excessive amounts of overtime to meet project deadlines and production schedule.
    No real sense of comradery between staff / departments.

    Pros

    Good amount of learning, its a growing company especially with new launches, the company seems to heading to further growth.

    Cons

    Lacks vision, management is short sighted, don't seem to be looking at the big picture. Too much process driven sometimes defying logic. Work life balance is completely missing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee makes a happy company and leads to delightful customers. Ensuring employees are happy, their families are happy and have a good work life balance. Aim for your employees waking up on a Monday morning and looking forward to go to office.
