    Good Place to Work

    CAD Designer (Former Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsLeadership, benefits, time-off policies were exceptionally better ten+ years ago.
    Today employees are getting shafted with out pocket expenses.

    ConsWork life, balance, office culture are okay, promotions are only given to the employees that are the managers favorites. They do performance reviews without the employee even being there to defend there position. They let you go the whole year without discussing if you are not working at your potential.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork-life balance needs to improve, should allow flex time as flex time is meant to be. Promotions, managers need to perform the PDM through the year, letting employee go all year without any conversation whether they are performing at meeting requirement's or not.

    Copy lacks foresight and long term planning

    Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Stanfield, AZ

    Prosgood place to gain experience. Can actually drive vehicles.

    ConsCompany lacks foresight, creating a lot of the emergencies the inevitably come up. Employees are not a priority. Cost reduction rule the day which eventually cause problems that cost more to fix than the cost reductions. Poor corporate culture. Lack of accountability and integrity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend money up front to save money on the back end. Make employees a priority.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging environment, cost driven task

    Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsChallenging, much to learn, can expand skill and expertise

    ConsPay is about 20% lower than Big3, many left last year and this year because of this.

    Good work environment but be ready to handle high work load and somewhat poor work-balance.

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsMulti task environment, work on several projects at the same time.
    Benefits have eroded over the last 5 years but similar with other OEM's.
    Satisfactory training options
    Room to grow if you work for the right department / management.

    ConsCommunication can be very difficult between local and international entities. Needs lots of patience.
    Top-heavy management.
    Work-life balance better suited for singles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your mid-career engineer / managers

    EMC work it was OK and but different. Too many meetings every day.

    Emc Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsWork environment was OK. Equipment was old and software was also old.

    ConsManagement was complex to understand. Every one looked busy, Flexible working hours was OK

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew employee were asked to take notes. In my view they should make hand out with operating procedures. Which every one can understand. Training was done with written documents and trainees were asked to take notes.

    Senior Project Engineer

    Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsGood starting point for a college graduate, got deal on lease vehicles

    ConsLong hours, poor work life balance, excessive workload, very limited opportunities for advancement, high turnover, high stress

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire enough people to do the job required, very understaffed. Keep managers in their position for more than 1 year. Many managers have a lot of different experiences but are experts in nothing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsInternational experience, smaller than other Big 3 OEMs so more responsibility and exposure.

    Great place to learn many different vehicle development functions.

    Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    ProsSmall company means you have lots of different responsibilities which keeps things interesting and you learn a lot.

    ConsMost depts. require overtime. In some depts. it is quite excessive. There is never enough people to get the job done in 40 hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorkload spikes and valleys are tiresome to manage. More projects should be taken on simultaneously in conjunction with a larger workforce to make a more consistent work schedule.

    Multitasks environment and fast pace

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Farmington Hills, MI

    Prosit is a very lean R&D organization comparing to other OEMs. Competitive pay and benefits. It provides plenty opportunities to learn and grow professionally.

    ConsHigh stress and workload, there is not much work-life balance. Turnover is high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't keep telling us that we are properly staff because mountain chart says so. Head count is just half the story. Mountain chart does not measure skills and capability. People is one of the pillars to support Power88. You all know the issues, please do something!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
