      Turbochargers & The Waning World of Internal Combustion Engines

      Apr 9, 2021 - Senior Engineer in Asheville, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Very strong technical teams and talent density. - Product portfolio is genuinely world class. - Great customer relationships and customer service. - Smart acquisitions in recent years for expansion into EV market segments. - Strong underlying financials

      Cons

      - The location in Asheville is rife with the good-old-boys mentality. This stifles internal (healthy) competition and promotional opportunities. - The combustion industry is on its way out, so talent retention and density will be very important as those tied to it naturally contract. BorgWarner is not doing enough to keep their star employees or motivate them (at least, within the ETTS business unit). - Specific to Application Engineering: there is an enormous amount of emphasis and pressure placed on the engineers to win business at all costs - more so than Sales. This disparity is not fairly reflected in the compensation or monetary incentives for Application Engineers. - External hires seem to be equally (if not more) favored than internal hires, even for those who 'exceed expectations' year after year.
