    I was a summer intern at Remy and found it be an amazing company to grow with fantastic employees and good potential.

    I worked at Remy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I felt that communication between managers throughout all levels of the company was excellent. I was always able to walk into my boss's office for a quick word and some advice; I was even able to meet the CEO! I found that since this is a somewhat smaller company, I was able to get my hands on a lot of different projects and talk with employees in a variety of departments (all of which were friendly and willing to share their knowledge and help), so this is definitely a great place to grow.

    Cons

    There is a definite need for a centralized database with a uniform source of information. This was a source of huge inefficiency during my time; HOWEVER, to the company's credit, this issue was being resolved as I was leaving for the summer. Training programs were a little scarce when I was there so it was a challenge at times to find a standardized but again, they were actively addressing this issue while I was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication: it's fantastic! Try to offer a few more training opportunities and definitely develop a centralized database of information!

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Remy

    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

    Great work place. I worked with engineers who really knew what they were talking about and were commited to the core values of the company. Everyday was a new experience that built my abilities both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Jobs are very localized. Going to work for Remy means going to work in Pendleton, IN. A small company isn't bad, but there isn't a huge opportunity for spreading out to new places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. The company is being run great.

    I worked at Remy full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Remy full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your people. Business planning is a weakness.

    Tough Automotive Marketplace Pressuring All

    I worked at Remy

    Pros

    Very open management communication, organization seems poised for turn around and future with new products.

    Cons

    Marketplace continues to be very tough and hyper price sensitive with depressed OE market and overcapacity - short term growth heavily focussed on cost reduction with top-line growth pressures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up turn around initiatives - find a way to work 'fun' into the organization despite immmense market pressures.
