    I worked at American Honda Motor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits - that's all I can think of.

    Cons

    Constant talk about respect for the individual. That's all it is, is just talk. No team environment. Supervisors on second shift treat all associates with disrespect. They yell and swear at all associates, never take responsibility for their actions, constantly blame someone else. Leads on second shift sit in the office at night, along with the supervisors. Who is running the place?

    Advice to Management

    Show a true concern for employees having some semblance of a work/life balance, make sure supervisors and leads (especially on second shift) aren't abusing their positions of power by treating their subordinates (Honda and agency) with complete disrespect. Make (and enforce) a statement that yelling/abusive language is not a tolerated form of discipline.

    I worked at American Honda Motor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, 401k, employee discounts, recognizeable company history

    Cons

    Management demands for you to come up with new concepts, but will actively discourage doing anything different. This makes staff lazy and complacent. Departments within departments within departments exist to justify themselves for needing to exist.

    I have been working at American Honda Motor full-time

    Pros

    for the most part, the people are amazing. benefits are great, campus is nice, and onsite gym.

    Cons

    I have been at Honda for about two years now and it is a sink or swim environment. everyone is too busy drowning in their own work to help eachother. everyone has said they feel overworked or is doing the work of 2-3 people. i do not see myself staying here for long.

    Advice to Management

    phones are ancient, cafeteria food is overpriced, allow the younger generation to have a voice

    I have been working at American Honda Motor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people here are like my family. We have all been here for 14+ years and counting. The work environment is always encouraging and amazing! Everyday, I am thankful for my job and coming to work!

    Cons

    The workload can be challenging and the different types of projects. Although, rising to the challenge and adjusting to learning and adapting to a face pace environment are amazing accomplishments once assigned projects are implemented.

    Advice to Management

    It's really hard to get a promotion once we are a Product Manager or an Assistant Manager. Any management vacancies are hard to come by since no one leaves until retirement.

    Pros

    The product is great and makes me confidant to talk about. The customers are like family and have a generally splendid temprement. Pay is pretty decent for the work.

    Cons

    Management of course, as always. Not that it's saying much, but they've still been better than any business I've worked for thus far.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and ask questions.

    Pros

    The company truly lives by values that are admirable to all associates at all levels. It feels like family working here.

    Cons

    Does not pay what a comparable job would at another company and salaries are not usually negotiated. Somewhat antiquated systems too.

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with, friendly, culture is improving flexibility for workers. Still a ways to go to be considered contemporary but local HR is working at it.

    Cons

    The culture of work is very prescribed, very structured which can stifle creativity and cause slowdowns of work flows. Tremendously.
