    I worked at BMW full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, including onsite health clinic, lease program, and retirement. Many opportunities for travel and promotion.

    Cons

    Disappointed in top managements' emphasis on safety and development of their associates. Not many opportunities for those outside the engineering realm.

    Pros

    To work at BMW brings the sense of pride, as one of the largest automobile company. It has highly systematic team work frame with excellent work distribution.

    Cons

    Working at one of the largest company has its downside too, sometimes it has large amount of pending work due to large customer base which basically increases the pressure on the working team

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to the management will be to have better online reception where customers can schedule the appointment more accurately which will increase the efficiency of the workers as well as better experience for the customers.

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

    Pros

    Great car lease program as benefit for the associates. Good level of career movements opportunities cross-functional.

    Cons

    Lack of development programs for leaders resulting in poor leadership in some areas and locations. Too much control from headquarters. To be under-staffed seems to be a normal. Systematic budget cuts while achieving sales records brings a big impact in employees motivation and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in developing your leadership and in providing internal employees an opportunity to grow, especially those in entry-level positions.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. BMW is a Premium well known name and high profile brand. Job security with increased production and only plant in USA.

    Cons

    Not much movement within company. No accountability for individuals. More and more benefits are being reduced or eliminated complitly for example pension is no longer available to new hires. Working longer hours with reduced benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Always give positive feed back and lead your team by your own examples. A negative start to every day discourages your teams moral tell them what they do right instead if what they do wrong all the time. Treat them as the adults they are and not preschool children.

    I worked at BMW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The teams are full of great people who enjoy their jobs and appreciate new ideas. 40 hr/wk was required, but could be accomplished in four days.

    Cons

    The co-op program only lasts one year, and I would have enjoyed working the company longer. It took a few weeks to receive an ID card, so productivity was limited for those weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Management should try to have permissions and accesses ready to go before interns arrive for work. That way the interns can hit the ground running.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Most people are hard working and friendly. Mid level management are competent and dedicated.

    Cons

    Career path and career opportunities within the company were not clear or limited. There seem to have more entry level employees than mid to advanced level employees.
