    Pros

    TI Automotive is a great company to work for. I am happy with the way they treat their employees and customers.

    Cons

    I cant say that there is anything that stands out enough for me to want to add it to this area.

    I worked at TI Automotive full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some good employees, decent benefits and salary, subsidized lunch

    Cons

    Organization is top heavy. There are constant reorganizations that result in chaos among the employees. You have to know the "right" people to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the constant reorganizations. Value employees for their accomplishments instead of basing it on personal opinions.

    I worked at TI Automotive full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I took the job because I was in a desperate situation. I did not research the company and look at it's German background.

    Cons

    Very low relocation. Management is very dictatorial and uninformative. You take your best guess at what they want. Management does not like anyone over 50 years old and will only use you until they find a 30 year old replacement. They will use the experienced people to do the difficult jobs and when they are finished they let them go for no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need some people with experience. The young managers are not seasoned enough to take the company where you want it to go. You might look at the key people that have resigned in the last year and ask yourself why?

    Pros

    Good and stable customer base. Approved products and processes.

    Cons

    No real company culture, too many subsidiaries within the company. Almost every location is customer and supplier to another TI-Automotive location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break interpersonal connections and treat internal suppliers like any external supplier.

    Current Employee - Machine Operator in Marysville, MI

    I have been working at TI Automotive full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is higher than some factories/shops in the area. You get a chair to sit in when the line runs well.

    Cons

    Managers treat floor workers like subhumans. 110 degrees during the summer. No relief workers for breaks- which can mean 8 hours without a break from the line. Numerous safety concerns/issues. Not much of a chance for career growth. Management is out of touch with reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in the floor worker's shoes. Ask yourself if you'd be willing to do what you ask of them. Cut back on the nepotism and favoritism. Update your managing techniques- this is not the late 1800s anymore. Happy workers are better workers.

    I worked at TI Automotive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    For starters, pay was pretty god. And the supervisor was that rare thing called a really good boss.

    Cons

    My job entailed a double position that became one because I was so quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the place open.

    Pros

    The company has a few divisions that may interest you.

    Cons

    The division i worked for was Union and the union only took your money and provided now benefits. It needs to be voted out.

    Pros

    The people there are great. Some supervisors are good. Hours aren't too bad. Work is fairly simple. If you get detailed training then you will succeed.

    Cons

    Underpaid and under appreciated. Need a way better training program. They don't pay enough. They tend to mistreat good people and praise the bad one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what employees have to say. Communicate more.

    Pros

    Leadership at the top (CEO) is fantastic. Too bad that vision is not shared by his direct reports

    Cons

    Many people dissatisfied with the support functions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your HR department and the true value that is (or is not) being added to the business

    Pros

    Great people and a great environment. Corporate NA IT management is fantastic to work for and has great direction. Good work/life balance

    Cons

    No room for growth, global IT management has poor vision and lack of direction, causing a difficult "global team". IT budget is very lean and thus, difficult to work with at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The NA IT management should run the show. The have a better grasp on the direction and vision for the growth of the company. Also, salary needs to be more competitive. Talent is being lost due to an inability to compensate them appropriately.
