    Former Employee - Engineer in Houghton-le-Spring, England (UK)

    I worked at Nissan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paid overtime (and plenty of it).
    Good overall package (car lease scheme, sickness benefits, private health care).
    Flexible working (depending on team).
    Training and development.
    Easily accessible.

    Cons

    Basic salary lower than comparable (less stressful) jobs at local companies.
    Pension below industry standard.
    Management expect too much from staff.
    Salary progression (linked to performance) woeful - no real reason to perform.
    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the right money to attract suitable staff and hold on to your existing staff (your biggest asset!).

    Pros

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

    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.
