    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.

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Everyone is very helpful and a lot of work is required, which in turn makes a great learning experience for any new engineers that are beginning their career in the automotive industry and any other industry.

    Cons

    One of benefits of working a lot is obtaining a lot of informaiton and experience, but at the same time, an engineer will be working a lot of hours to complete assignments. In turn, an engineer will have to sacrifice some of his/her personal time for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is great direction and a great business structure. The open door/flat business heirarchy is beneficial in implementing changes. Be more aware of hours being worked by engineers to complete projects/jobs because there are a lot of hours being worked because some managers require them.
