    Pros

    Friendly environment, compensation above industry average.

    Cons

    Company`s organisational structure changed many times, there was no clear career plan and relationship with management was rather difficult as it was very informal and not committed

    Young and dynamic but crazy, at least Europen headquarter...

    I worked at Nissan full-time

    Pros

    Europen headquarter is very young and quite dynamic

    Cons

    The salary level is definitely under the market value. Good and talented people never stay there longer than 3 years what explains the high turnover. Poor level of management and no moral within the company. However if you treat it only as a place to start with, you can have a lot of fun there!! I have never seen that many crazy people regrouped in one place!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at Europen headquarter and improve moral!

    Pros

    The people from Management down to the Associates were great people. The Benefits were amazing as well.

    Cons

    There were not any CONS that I can remember at this current time.

    Advice to Management

    I do NOT have any advice for Management at this current time. All mangers from Section Mangers to Senior were great to work with.

    Pros

    Owners care about their employees and try to do right by them.

    Cons

    The environment is very unstructured, training is minimal and little focus is placed on it. You are essentially on your own, so it is best if you already have your selling skills down.

    Advice to Management

    Implement more structure in your training and be congruent in what is presented to your sales team.

    I have been working at Nissan (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation benefits, perks, bonuses, stability as it's very hard to be kicked from the company

    Cons

    Politics are really hard to whithstand. Growth is limited and subject to friendship or top management recommendations. Hard to have balance due to Japan meeting on the afternoon or evening.

    Pros

    Truly international company, offers development opportunities globally and is a company that is not afraid of taking important decisions or take drastic actions

    Cons

    Few downsides, just those coming from the need to reach global scale in order to compete long-term and afford product development resources.

    Advice to Management

    The challenge is to bet on the right technologies going forward: electric, hybrid, fuel cell, autonomous drive, connected cars.
