    I have been working at BMW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    HR department is terrible and unfair. They do not fully investigate issues. You better be a favorite of someone in HR or someone of upper management. Pay is okay but they make you work a terrible schedule. Benefits are great for your family but the strain on the individual working there makes it not worth it.

    Cons

    Terrible HR, Terrible management, trys to rip their own employees off any chance given.

    I have been working at BMW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money is OK. Work isn't very hard. Overall it's an easy job. Easy to move up the ladder because they can't keep people.

    Cons

    Only plant in the world where we are contracted. Constantly swapping between El cheapo security companies that make a company like Walmart look outstanding. Benefits are outrageously expensive and practically useless. No retirement plan. No PTO. No training budget. No annual training burn as required by the NFPA. 0 formal training on safety yet we are expected enforce BMW'S safety policies for contractors. Equipment is not dependable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pinching pennies and invest in your people.

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

    Pros

    Clean work environment, decent pay but not as much as other auto manufacturers. Benefits package is good but degrades more each year.

    Cons

    Very bad management who makes arbitrary process changes to impress Germany and then grinds employees into the ground to make up the numbers for their bad decisions. Work/life balance is non existent except for only one week per month. No sick days unless salaried. Management don't "lead by example"! They call overtime and then go home!

    Advice to Management

    Stop grinding employees into the ground to make up numbers for your bad decisions! Try "leading by example" for once instead of "leading from behind"!

    I worked at BMW full-time

    Pros

    Great Product and clients to work with.

    Cons

    Due to changes and "Future Retail" they are no longer a premium experience for customers. I was told for 20 years we provided the best shopping experience. BMW and Dealerships have changed to a Toyota / Mazda operation of jerking customers around and clients was now telling me they hate it. I'm told now by every Client Advisor still there they hate it and it is no longer fun. Also pay cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Quit threatening to fire client advisors everyday. Quit having meetings everyday. Return authority back to client advisors and quit requiring multiple mgrs. to review every deal.
