    Pros

    A long lived company with a respected name in the automotive industry.

    Cons

    The employees do want the company to succeed, but upper level management and the executive staff seem to be doing everything in their power to make it fail. They (the company) go through cycles of hiring and then a couple of years later they purge because of poor financial decisions. It is a bloodbath and a lot of hard working employees loose their jobs. They give poor separation packages, no retraining assistance and just tell you to go to the unemployment office and file. I was caught up in the last cuts in 2013 and just a week later, the CEO retired and was given a 7 million dollar retirement package and a seat on the board.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to be first to market, focus on creating a great product and sell the whole thing, not just part of it. Realize the people doing the physical work are the reason the company stays in business and not because someone sits at a desk and is the CEO. Reduce the size of upper and mid level management and the executive staff. You are top heavy.

    Pros

    The people here are wonderful and they are flexible a lot of the time when it comes to family life.

    Cons

    This is an interesting place to work. It seems to be competitive but lacks direction at times. It seems they need to wake up

    Advice to Management

    Pick a plan and stick with it. Try new things but keep the overall goal the same.

    Pros

    There are so many great people that work at. Not much micromanagement. Very easy to get to know people in the office because all departments work closely. Upper management works closely with employees, and truly cares about their opinions.

    Cons

    Some employees are overworked. Salary and benefits have been scaled back recently.

    Pros

    The employees and the directors are a great group of capable people.

    Cons

    The CEO is extremely greedy and self serving. The corporate culture is one that does not encourage development of people or processes. People's efforts are not celebrated and one's salary is not secure. Though the people at the bottom of the pyramid are very capable the coporate culture or the glue does not allow for resources to mesh well together and to actually accomplish goals.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people. Give people an incentive to actually want to contribute and grow with Remy. Be careful about cutting people's salaries at a time when the company is profitable. It sends the message that you are greedy. Be humble enough to tell the investors that you are not going to hit a number that you knew was unrealistic in the first place. Listen to your employess.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good for some, but not for all. If you like to work independently with little direction this is a major plus. Salaries seem to be competitive.

    Cons

    Managers do a poor job of keeping the eye on the ball. Tasks are giving out with little follow-up or direction, this includes critical business items. While the salary is good, benefits are not the best. Compared to other companies Remy is not involved in the community and doesn't really care to be.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your people. Business planning is a weakness.
