    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, very flexible schedule (work from home, leave when necessary, etc. as long as your work is done), training is encouraged

    Cons

    Process improvements sometimes are resisted due to entrenched "this is the way we've always done it" attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    provide more support to process improvements and don't just let the worker bees force the change up from the bottom. You need to broadcast the changes from on high as well.

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Had overtime, decent pay as well as far as industry standards.

    Cons

    Company doesn't care at all about making employees happy, only customers.

    Advice to Management

    Create some type of room for your employees to have some type of enjoyment while at work. Idk, maybe longer breaks, or just giving them the freedom enough to do some things they actually enjoy while production is running smoothly.

  3. "Intern"

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time

    Pros

    Large company that's still growing

    Cons

    No hierarchy or plan to take advantage of obvious synergies between plants. Think Dial up versus DSL versus Cable versus fiber internet speeds.

    Advice to Management

    When you flip the pyramid give the plant actual power and autonomy to do their jobs without interference from the mother-ship.

    I have been working at BorgWarner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good technologies to work on.

    Cons

    BorgWarner as a company and the leadership as much as they state they're innovative, fast moving, etc, in reality they don't do anything innovative. Every single project I have been part of is a result of customer pushing the requirements. There is so much potential to create new and innovative solutions but none of the leadership seems to be as interested as they're in the finances of the projects. Now I understand any company has to make money and importance of financials. I think the company is lacking in many fronts - innovation, attracting top talent, etc.

    On a personal level, I have had a lot of satisfaction for the first couple of years or so and then when I want to move to other roles. I took training and worked hard to get the certifications. Neither my manager nor HR is really interested in advancing me to the next level. Now anyone may be critical of me and say that there is something lacking in me, but I have checked all the boxes and writing this review after one year of facing issues after issues. Leadership doesn't seem to exist in the truest sense. I have asked repeatedly for feedback and mentoring and heard back nothing. Very hard to learn unless you move to another division or go to a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to be very complacent with current projects and focused on financials. Recognizing top talent and mentoring to those willing to learn and grow.
