    Pros

    Lot's of chance to learn if you are willing to learn. Good benefit on 401k and health insurance.

    Cons

    Hard to keep good balance between personal life and work if you want to make customer satisfy. Basically lack of resource compared to number of project. IT support very poor and administrative works are getting worse due to removed s/w to save cost.

    Advice to Management

    All the removed system and s/w to save cost will be no saving at the end because lot's of employees spend additional time to complete not the project but expense report and trip schedule and ticketing etc.

    Pros

    There are a few great people here. They have a global presence.

    Cons

    Divisions with the company operate as silos, don't help each other, and charge the other divisions for parts or help. There is an unjustifiable atmosphere of paranoia around trade secrets. Their core business is to take parts that car manufacturers need and make them smaller and cheaper. There is a clear lack of innovation in the company. Ideas outside of "sell a piece of hardware to a car manufacturer" are thrown out very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Working the team extremely hard and accounting for every hour from your employees creates an atmosphere of distrust between workers and management. Let us focus and get things done.

    Pros

    Many friendly employees to work with, as long as you're not in the office. Though it does pay better than most places.

    Cons

    Supervisors need to take responsibility for their own actions. Stop blaming things on employees and listen to them when they have a problem. Engineers need to show more respect to other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people who know what they are doing in the office. It's pretty bad when the General Manager can't even answer one question at company meetings because he doesn't even know what is going on in the company that "HE" works for! And they wonder why they keep losing money.
