        I have been working at BorgWarner full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Most co-workers are laid back and willing to help/train.

        Cons

        Upper management is clueless and engineers are underpaid. Plant is run like it is still in the 1960s.

        Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Ithaca, NY

        Negative Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

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

        Pros

        Good benefits for a family person. Gain a lot of experience in a short period of time.

        Cons

        Manufacturing is relied on for everything. Maintenance, techs and line workers disappear when a line goes down and it is up to the engineer to get it back running. Management refuses to change the culture. Work long hours including weekends and holidays. High rate of turnover voluntary and involuntary.

        Advice to Management

        Get organized. There is no guidance from top management on down. Each department is working in their own direction. The whole organization needs to move is the same direction with clear understanding of objectives.

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

        Pros

        Its easy and you dont have to do much to get paid

        Cons

        No drive for job performance. Alls you need to do is the status quo because anything above and beyond won't get recognized.
