    Terrible!!! Cheap management and the worst HR team!

    I worked at Nissan

    Pros

    Learning experience. Things are such a mess that employees have to learn how to do all the things by themselves.

    Cons

    Lack of ethics is the rule at Nissan. About the work, the system used at this company is...Excel. Tons of useless requests from management who doesnt understand the business. Ignorant management promoting people as ignorante as them, while the good employees suffer the consequences. Lot of expats at management level who have to be taught how to run the business. Talent Management is a joke - they even recommend dirty networking to get promotions or positions and openly say that employees are responsible to find new position by themselves - skills and knowledge aren't important. Key employees are leaving the company that makes things even worse!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at European headquarters - complete disaster.

    I worked at Nissan as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities and projects
    Higher than average pay
    Team activities and meals out
    Discounted Gym membership and good Nissan car discounts

    Cons

    Day starts at 7.55 and ends at 4.40 with only a 30 minute lunch
    We were working on Windows XP operating system
    Office politics make work difficult and leave unpleasant work environment
    Some in the office area take advantage of being left to complete own work without close supervision and will sit on Facebook, Daily Mirror and other websites while others work which leads to frustration in the office.

    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.
