    Pros

    Great people working here, corporate culture is well designed but like any large system hard to execute. I really enjoy working with these people, I would say that it is a healthier than elsewhere.

    Cons

    60% of the employees are internal and get all of the benefits you can imagine like PTO, car, sick days, 401K, holidays... As for temporary workforce, they have nothing and their salary is 40% lower, but they all do the same job, just some of them were lucky to get an internal position. In most of the cases those people don’t have vacations and they come to work sick as they can’t afford to stay at home.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about people and equality.

    Pros

    BMW is a safe place to work. They offer good benefits, including the pay. The company is always trying to improve for the future.

    The hours are long. They change the schedules too much. No sick days.

    Advice to Management

    The management group needs to be more concerned about the well-being of their associates. The management group needs to learn each job that they are over.
