    I worked at BorgWarner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the best companies I've worked for. They try to keep the fun going. And the general population is kind. Easy to make friends. And easy to be involved in different groups and events.

    Cons

    They take too long to backfill a position and then once they start the process they will take almost anyone they can get without ensuring its the right person for the team, which is very detrimental when filling a management position.

    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (insurance, retirement contributions, vacation, holidays, etc) Extra perks. Managers care about the people. They try to be morally responsible. They focus on your enrichment, both personal and professional.

    Cons

    It is a corporation, so you are a small part of a big machine. Some promotions seem a bit questionable.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time

    Pros

    Ithaca is a beautiful place.

    Cons

    Poor management and business decisions. Morale was also at rock bottom during my time, things were cancelled constantly and the director was incompetent (luckily he was replaced). My manager would take random half days off without telling anyone and would sometimes just sit behind me and watch me work while making snide comments. What really pushed me over the edge was when I had to stay late into the night to fix a test stand on my wifes birthday. That stand then went on to remain untouched for the next two weeks. Unless you are fresh out of college and desperate for a job take anything else.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bellwood, IL

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good over all benefits, on-site gym

    Cons

    Bad management, not very concerned about moral. Rather make their numbers than worry about actual quality parts. High turn over with temp workers with no real incentive to stay and/or do good work. Under qualified and/or under trained operators running sophisticated machinery. Would rather shuffle managers/supervisors around that are failing than get rid of them.

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The does it's best to give employees autonomy in their daily lives. BorgWarner also is good about making some of the hard decisions when they need to.

    Cons

    There are some management decision that can leave you scratching your head. One thing to be aware of is that BorgWarner is heading towards a leader of EV/HV technologies. If you are focused on combustion then this is NOT the place for you.
