    Pros

    The past week has been an extremely delightful experience working for AVL in Plymouth, Michigan. There professionalism is rare, the way the employees are treated with respect and gratitude seems to create a comfortable work environment. Each project I was a part of was done with high quality standards and the attention to detail resulted in superior product.

    Cons

    Trying to keep up with my Co-workers on every aspect from production pace to strict specifications and overall quality of the work being performed was challenging.

    I worked at AVL North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    AVL has a lax work environment, good product in the automotive test equipment space, possibility to transfer internationally and a respected name in the Automotive industry

    Cons

    It can be frustrating to work at AVL in any department due to unclear internal company structure, no training, low pay, few vacation days and internal competition when not necessary. Often times your co-workers will not know who to speak to for answers or you will find projects fail because they are given to other departments who then try to pass it off to another department and so on. There is no clear company culture and upper management is often times in their position due to familial or personal connections.

    The HR department lacks work ethics. They are not professional, gossip, and nobody likes them. They will get your fired if they don't like you.

    Enjoyable work environment Coworkers are all good people

    Very little job security AVL makes sure their employees know that they are an "at will employer" - they can fire you without warning. HR department is not what it used to be
