    Pros

    good place to work and very family orient

    Cons

    CHANGE is not always bad and if you want to get to the next level listen to your employees. We have to many cost savings at Wix to be in the shape we are in. We have to many extra people at our plant not to hire TEMPS. To many people in MANAGEMENT and they are not business incline. We have a lot of seasoned workers. Need a MAKE OVER!

    Advice to Management

    CHANGE

    Pros

    Phenomenal people and fair compensation. There is a very high degree of mutual respect among coworkers at Affinia. I worked at the Ann Arbor corporate office and it was an excellent experience.

    Cons

    The company is owned by private equity so what tomorrow will bring was never certain, but Affinia certainly treated people fairly in relation to this situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your team members fairly, and you will continue to get the best out of them. You did a great job while I was with Affinia.

    Pros

    None really. Management is from the 50's. Hr is incompetent. Don't walk away, run away.

    Cons

    Feckless management. They built a good IT team, then removed them all, VP's included. This happened in the space of a year. Management makes strange decisions if you assume they are trying to run a legal business. But if your goal is to spend investor money for big pay outs for top level and the 2nd tier management makes they pay out from vendors kick backs? Their management style starts to make sense.

    Advice to Management

    I think the law will catch up to you in the end.

    Pros

    Low stress office work environment. People are friendly. Company is heavily involved in community outreach such as Relay for Life and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

    Cons

    Executive management is not qualified for their respective positions. They lack mentoring in preparation for their assignments and experience in other companies which is evident in their lack of vision and immaturity in execution. They reward attendance over performance. There is zero flexibility for working parents. They chose the cheapest options to the detriment of working effectively (IT systems are out-of-date and poorly supported). Being in Gastonia is a difficult area to attract and retain talent. HR and IT are not held accountable for their lack of results.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be encouraging constant innovation and improvement. Hold under performing leaders accountable.

    Cons

    Management sold their soul to the Devil. Wait, they have no soul.

    Advice to Management

    Seppuku

    I worked at Affinia Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Did treat people like humans, working weekends was super rare, little perks here and there. Decent 401k and there was little to get in the way of your job. Family life was respected well.

    Cons

    The company is full of people waiting to retire. The attitude of the high ups is positives but those in middle management want to do nothing but lay in cruse control as much as possible. Good ideas are shot down fast, young folks are pressured to keep quiet and not make rifts, and the learning atmosphere is non-existent. Special treatment is bountiful. Temps are abused heavily and hope of becoming full-time is non-existent. Many other reviews say they are stuck in the 80's and I could not agree more.

    Advice to Management

    Just because they are serving an aging crowd does not mean they can live there forever in their ways. Most of the people will retire in 10 years and take a good majority of the foundation of the company with them. Keith Wilson needs to seriously clean house of his upper-mid management and replace them with fresh talent outside.

    Pros

    Paycheck some employees and good benefits

    Cons

    Management sucks and some not all employees keep drama around and spreads lies and try to get people fired if you work better then they do and have more than they have

    Advice to Management

    Get the right people out the door not the ones that want to work and listen to the employees. Yall say if you have a problem let them know but thats a lie once u let them know something is goin on they are all against u and can't wait for u to be fired.
