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

    Pros

    i loved the hours, they were easy to work around with my daughter and my co workers were people I had gone to school with most of my life.

    Cons

    The work could be physically strenuous and at times, too much for me to bear. I used to come home with scratches and small cuts all over my forearms from trying to keep rate and make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had the best supervisor when I worked here-then he got a promotion and became the worst foreman I ever worked for. My advice to you is to watch who you promote---some arent as good in one position as they were in another.

    Pros

    There are no pros about this company. I am writing this review to tell others to stay away.

    Cons

    Management is a collection of greedy, self-centered egotistical automotive industry has-beens. I do not see how they sleep at night considering how they treat people and knowingly stuff their pockets with undeserving bonuses and golden parachutes!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and enjoy your great wealth. Stop destroying the companies future.

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing good to say about this company!!!!!

    If you want to managed by fear and intimidation by automotive industry rejects, this is the place that you want to work!!!!

    Cons

    Executives are interested in stuffing their pockets one last time in their career. If you are looking for a career, run away from this company!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect and dignity.
    There is more to life than making more money for yourself. Think about the people who just want to make an HONEST living!!!!!

    Nice place to work and learn. Corporate management and direction is questionable at best.

    Pros

    Friendly people and nice workplace. Able to learn a lot if you're motivated and ask around.

    Cons

    Questionable management on the corporate level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency. How does management justify expensive air travel to other countries for a bunch of corporate members when web conferencing is just as effective? All the while the rest of the company is told to cut expenses.

    I have been working at Tecumseh Products

    Pros

    I feel that Tecumseh Products is the best job I've ever had. I go in every morning with joy, knowing that I'm working with people that are serious about their job. The employees take great pride in the quality of the product. I wouldn't buy any other brand.

    Cons

    At certain times the hours of operation per week can be overwhelming. Sometimes I see work loads a bit much on one person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at Tecumseh Products is great. The quality team couldn't be any better. I work in a very clean environment. I am always well informed of any changes or issues. If I have any questions or problems, I know who to turn to.

    I worked at Tecumseh Products

    Pros

    compensation is ok relative to other companies in the area, however since they moved to ann arbor it becomes less of an advantage

    Cons

    the upper managerment is not well respected or trusted, too many shady characters at the top. they don't seem to treat employees well in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you treat your people better, and as part of a team, they will be better workers and you will have a lot less turnover

    Former Employee - Lean Engineer in Lyon (France)

    I worked at Tecumseh Products full-time

    Pros

    With This mission, I could improve my skills-set and used all methods I learnt in engineer school in France like: Project Management, LEAN Methods, management, a good organization and an industrial diagnostic.

    Cons

    My challenge was to improve the effeciency of a production line. With a diagnostic of this line, I created 3 teams for 3 objectives. i was the project coordinator. After some test (using LEAN methods: six sigma, kaizen, 5S) and reorganisation of workspaces, we improve the efficiency of the line: + 5 points.
