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

    Pros

    The headquarters has good flexibility and benefits. Cheap health care, 2 work from home days per month, good vacation days for new employees with an increase once you hit the 5 year mark. Profit sharing in June each year. They give you opportunities to travel worldwide and even promote foreign assignments.

    Cons

    Most of the departments in the organization are very horizontal. Can be difficult to get promoted however they do cross-functional inter company movements often to keep talented employees engaged.

    I worked at Brose full-time

    Pros

    Good pay if you are a direct hire, if you come in as a temp. You get 2 dollars or more less.

    Cons

    No guaranteed hours especially on night shift. But then will be forced to work 7 days one week and barely get 30 hours next week so any overtime is then turned into straight hours, because pay is bi-weekly and have to work 80 hours. Also short breaks. One 10 and 30 minute lunch.
