    I have been working at American Axle & Manufacturing

    Pros

    Excellent 401k, decent medical/dental, somewhat competitive salary, tuition reimbursement. Training/continued education is encouraged. Hands-on engineering is encouraged.

    Cons

    Long hours are sometimes encouraged, if not expected. During tough economic times like these in the US, engineers are asked to take on more work and work longer hours. The free fitness center just closed.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more focus from HR and Senior Management on retaining their best engineers. Don't let their salaries fall behind what other companies are offering. More importantly, don't let their salaries fall behind what you are offering new hires with the same or less experience. It is hard to find good driveline engineers and even harder to train those without driveline experience. Please maintain the... current 401k matching. It is our only hope of affording retirement and health care.

    I worked at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work and good pay for a full time student working 20-25 hours a week. Gained excellent knowledge that I use in my current role. My management was awesome and always understood that school comes first.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for college co-ops to stay after college. This should really be a feeder and development program to hire after college.

    Advice to Management

    Hire your college co-ops, much less training required when they transition to full time jobs due to them being there for 1-2 years.
