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

    Pros

    - Product is industry-leading
    - Work is fun and hands on
    - Relationships with co-workers and dealer partners
    - Benefits

    Cons

    - Salary is considerably below what would be paid for same job at another comparable manufacturer.
    - Work / life balance
    - Pressure to relocate every 1-2 years, or lose promotion opportunities.
    - Core values are pushed down across the organization, but company does not live them.

    Advice to Management

    - The forced rotation out to Torrance, CA simply to be promoted to an Assistant Zone Manager doesn’t make any sense anymore.
    - Asking employees to relocate every 1-2 years to earn a promotion puts a great deal of stress on families.
    - Look inward at core values and whether or not company is practicing what it is preaching.

    I worked at American Honda Motor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The genuine people I worked with! The Motorcycle Division is somewhat small. until you add in our riders, trainers and mechanics. We treated each other fairly and logically.

    My department within the division was one of the slowest position I've ever had. I ended up helping other departments with correspondent, filling, P.O. using SAP and I'm fluid in Microsoft Office.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not to shy but I do need a little time to get comfortable around people. When I do, I'm a great employee, friend and all around person.
