    Pros

    Subaru is a company that is small in #'s but remarkable in the level of care they have for employees, their customers and their community.

    Cons

    It's a challenge to be a progressive business environment when your parent company in Japan is steeped in some 'old school' thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going. As of 2014/2015, your management team has the full support of your employees.

    I have been working at Subaru of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company doing very well overall, sales keep increasing, people have very good positive attitudes, relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Most managers (Baby Boomers) have been employed at Subaru for 25+ years and are very comfortable in their positions. This is sort of an issue but if you go to any large company you will run into the same thing.

    Working remotely/ from home is not a norm.
    Most procedures need mgmt sign off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow working from home, compressed work weeks

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, and, product quality

    Cons

    Be part of the "club" or you have no room for advancement. Cash bonus slowly going backwards despite expectations for success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product success may not endure over time, so recognize those fighting the fight on the front line daily. Reward producers not those that that "play a game" better.
