    great people who are passionate about making great products for customers

    no layoffs lead to many unproductive people sticking around, attract the wrong type who wants a safe and secure environment

    Advice to Management

    PDCA is not going to transform the business. It is only good for incremental improvements. Broaden your management skills. Successful engineers don't necessary make good management decisions.

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

    Pros

    The original idea of helping people get these cars repaired to save lives.

    Cons

    1. Having to visit thousands of homes and businesses who MAY own or have owned Honda or Acura vehicles affected by the Takata airbag inflator recall.
    2. They make you use your personal vehicle and the mileage reimbursement barley covers the gas, let alone the wear and tear!
    3. Program is poorly executed and micro-managed. They consider themselves a sales team or something. Rather be selling Amway!
    4. No work/life balance....leave early in the morning and get home past dinner time.
    5. You work more hours than you're paid for.

    I have been working at American Honda Motor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are nice, Work is relatively easy

    Cons

    Company technology is quite behind. Only lateral mobility. You can only jump 1 pay grade per lateral move. Bonuses are based on feelings at the end of the year. Merit raise of 2% every year is considered your "raise" that you should be proud of.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure to allow for upward mobility. The only route should not be management.
