I worked at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Monetary compensation is almost commensurate with the agony endured.

Cons

Obscene levels of micro-management by superiors lacking appropriate knowledge or foresight. Absolutely no work/life balance. Expect 12 hour days, 7 days a week, and numerous harassing phone calls at home. Minimal opportunity for advancement. Inadequate safety procedures. Excruciatingly long machine down-time. Quality control almost non-existant. Lack of training programs. All the culture and altruism you would expect from a pit of vipers.

Advice to Management

Close the doors, just like in Detroit...
