    Pros

    The people I worked with were really nice and friendly. They had great personalities.

    Cons

    Worked all day doing my job subbing for others when they were out and did more than was expected with no appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow those who show great work ethic the opportunity to advance in position and pay.

    It has gone terribly down hill... Quality and caring about employees are no longer the concern.

    I have been working at Nissan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Leased vehicles. That's it at this point.

    Cons

    The best days as a place employees enjoy and are proud to work at are long gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's all about saving a dime at the expense of quality and the employees. Unqualified people are promoted through the "good ol boy network." I used to love working here about 10-15 years ago. Management cared about employees then and actual knew what they were doing. The new style of management here are arrogant and pompous and unqualified.

    I have been working at Nissan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Location is in a good area of greater Detroit area. Non union manufacturing

    Cons

    No carrer opportunities. One engineer is asked to do the job of 2-3 people. Long working hours. Defined pension plan was cancelled and bonuses reduced. Big disconnect between what the upper managment wants and what the company can deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create career opportunities for everybody in the company

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Associate in Smyrna, TN

    I have been working at Nissan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off are offered, as well as insurance (health, dental, vision), life insurance, 401k, etc. Work environment relatively clean and friendly.

    Cons

    Promotion selection could use some work. I am by nature a fast grower/learner, and have felt stagnant in my job for quite some time. Opportunities seem to be given to others in a loose "good-ol-boy" system to people who are sorely underqualified for their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a chance to prove themselves. Subject lower level management and line leads frequent anonymous employee surveys.

    Pros

    It's in a great location. It's the Auto business

    Cons

    LONG HOURS (7 AM until 6:30 is typical)
    On sales close, you will work until midnight. No exceptions.
    Employees hate each other.
    Benefits are terrible - especially insurance
    high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees to make them happy. Get rid of the bitter apples. From the secretaries (ESPECIALLY THE SECRETARIES) on up, they are all bitter.
