    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Co workers, make the misery of coming to work better. You are treated as a number not a person. Modern day slavery.

    Cons

    You work like you're a slave. They've taken away almost every perk that they originally had. Bmw does not care about you, they care about themselves. Very greedy company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ole boy system and let the Germans run the company

    N/A. Give employees information and training needed. However, as a new hire there wasn't much guidance. Understandable, i wasnt expecting someone to hold my hand, but there could have been a better segway.
