    I worked at Dana Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for as long as co-workers work with you and train you.

    Cons

    Some of the coaches are not professional. Crossville location has a good old boy person who speaks safety, but never followed by example. Leads are suppose to train new employees, but usually talks to one leaving others guessing what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more in touch with the workers to receive good advice about floor operations. Management only gets information from coaches that have know idea of floor operations. Coaches take warehouse associate's ideas and apply it as their idea.

    Cons

    We are Very busy in my department, sometimes stretched thin.

    Advice to Management

    As we continue to acquire and merger, be mindful to add additional support staff until we have the new locations fully integrated into our systems and processes. We can be stretched thin keeping our daily schedules plus adding special projects to support new sites.

    I worked at Dana Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers, good cafeteria (if johnny cooked it, you'll love it), some positions very rewarding, competitive pay, extremely high deductible health plan is free (good as long as your invincible)

    Cons

    Benefits were good when I started, within a year the Obamacare blame game came and they stripped everything. Instead of building a bunch of stupid tour sites they could focus a little more on their employees.
    Upper management will talk constantly about how good the company is doing then give a poor raise coupled with a depreciated bonus. I even heard that when the company exceeds their goals they will change the performance bonus target. Almost every other company I've heard of pays on the original metric and pays extra for over performing.
    Management is a joke, everything seems to be based on punishing mistakes instead of encouraging employees to not make them in the first place. Everything is write-up this or performance review that.
    They play music and white noise through the PA system all day, every day. So unless you like Sirius satellite pop and country, you're probably going to get annoyed very quickly.
    Work life balance can be very bad in certain areas of engineering, in others it's not an issue at all.
    Seemed like the only way to get promoted was to threaten to leave.
    Toledo Toledo Toledo. The city is a sad blown out bunghole of Detroit. A truly miserable place to live with almost nothing to do but drink is a dirty bar or eat "famous" garbage food.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up. Stop training employees to deal with conflict and keep your managers from starting it in the first place.

    I worked at Dana Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people below management level. Cafeteria team and food is great thanks to Johnny and Chef Chris.

    Cons

    People and experienced employees are not the most important asset as they say in every meeting. Managers are only interested in "showing" good numbers to keep their 6 digits salaries. The "One Dana" is a joke. Benefits are getting worse year over year. Company keeps laying off very experienced folks and replacing them with college kids or younger people just to reduce payroll. Shame on you!!!

    Advice to Management

    It is not worth to give any good advice to such bad management. They are not interested in improving anything.

    Pros

    Shut down in December. Decent benefits, but healthcare did not cover many key medications.

    Cons

    Culture, no development programs for managers, very poor best practice establishment, lack of teamwork. There is no One Dana.

    Advice to Management

    Get real management and adopt a culture that is collaborative. Engage in learning programs whether online, seminar, or offsite. Out of any Fortune 500 firm I've been involved with this had the worst atmosphere, especially within Finance.
