    Great company

    Co-Op (Current Employee)
    Ann Arbor, MI

    ProsStable, big name, nice managers, nice people, overtime, good benefits and more. Overall a great company to work for as a Co-Op.

    ConsSome of the people in TRINA are weird. Also a no professional reference policy makes it difficult to get a reference which is important for Co-Ops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    TOYOTA TEMA Research and Development in MIchigan - Do NOT work at Toyota in Ann Arbor, MI or York, MI

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Ann Arbor, MI

    ProsThe English speaking Team Members (for the most part) are easy to work with. They are very patient and understand that some of the some technical issues take time to resolve.

    ConsAs a contractor, I am basically ignored by all levels of management. This is no exaggeration. I mean I am literally ignored. I have made an effort to bust my butt every day and be outgoing but it doesn't matter at all. Even if I play "the game" bu going to various company functions (lunches, potlucks, etc), I am still ignored. Not even so much as a "hello, how are you today?" or a "thanks for your help on xyz project." Plus, the managers cherry-pick people for jobs. So if your contract house doesn't tell you about a new position, you will not hear about it until after it has been filled. And that's if the contract house was even told about the job!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransition contractors to Team Members after 6 months or a year. Otherwise, the turn over will remain at its very high levels. Stop with the "s/he wasn't a good fit." No, you need to pay attention to contractors if you want them to stay. It is that simply. Ignore your employees and they will leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
