    I have been working at Arvin Sango full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    College reimbursement, promote from within

    Cons

    Becoming top-heavy at corporate level, while cutting manpower on the shop floor.

    Advice to Management

    Arvin Sango was once a family. Micromanagement and lack of respect for the members on the shop floor is today's only care.

    Pros

    It's a secure and stable company, overall good people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes not appreciated for efforts and time put in, sometimes other departments don't do their jobs which makes it tougher, some members are very egotistic. Need to find a way to train members mor efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to put the right people in charge to take necessary control so that everyone plays their role in functioning as a productive team.

    I have been working at Arvin Sango full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation decent, benefits are par. Good hours. Quality driven company. Takes care of its members mostly. Had improved working conditions over the last few years. You can get away with just about anything at ASI.

    Cons

    Lack of property training for new hires and temporary members. People love to point the finger at some one else for the problems they are responsible for. Culture has deteriorated within ASI. No raises. It's hard for members to get ahead when we keep getting lump sum compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Begin holding people accountable for their actions. Stop allowing people to talk the talk but not walk the walk.

    Pros

    The members are friendly, most are respectful, good insurance, supportive of some non-profit orginization

    Cons

    Advancement is limited only to the good 'ol buddy system, upper management has no clue about shop floor, too much micro managing from executives.

    Advice to Management

    Look inside for advancement, make changes soon before the ship sinks

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    It's nice to work in a lean manufacturing environment. The company is committed to lean principles and development of it's members.

    Cons

    Because it's a medium sized organization, promotion opportunities are somewhat limited.
    Current performance management system isn't so effective.
    Upper Management trys to encourage open communication but sometimes information is difficult to desseminate.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at communicating requirements for promotion. Need better systems of developing members for promotion to the next level

    Pros

    It's a great paying job with great benifits. They are fair to the members and take good care of their needs, when there is a problem it is handled quickly to find a solution to correct things.

    Cons

    They have diffrent hours there than most places so if you work 2nd shift it doesnt allow for alot of free time, it can be very stressful at times when they are wanting you to get work done in 8 hours when it cant even be done in 12 hours.

    Advice to Management

    I think our managment does great job, however i think they should try harder to let the members on the floor know when they are doing a good job not just when they have done something wrong. We dont hear often enough that as a person we are preforming good, they tell us things as a company, but it would be nice to hear them tell those people in person.

    Pros

    Nice area
    Nice people
    Good team environment with a well organized workforce
    They strive for perfection and never give up

    Cons

    Dependence on Japan parent limits technology
    Cronyism is rampant,
    Outsiders to the local area do not have any chance to advance
    Management is top heavy and often clueless
    They really need to clean house and get new upper leadership leaving the middle management intact.

    Advice to Management

    No need for a figure head Japanese president and his aids add no value. The other big stops to the company is the old birds in the upper layers.

    Pros

    Systematic work style in automotive. Good engineering skills and technically powerful. Economically strong. It is a good opportunity for learning project control and part production.

    Cons

    No flexibility. It is hard to change the rules. Managers are rude and unlikeable. You cannot find a career chance in the organization. It is a slow structure and resist to change. Company do not force itself to change the point of view. There is not a human resources division. Human resources works like a recruitment office of blue collar and does only general affairs

    Advice to Management

    Change your mind. World changes and you should not stay at the same point forever.
