Pros

Pride in your work
Great benefits package including car lease program, 401k and pension
Competitive pay
Interesting work
Opportunity to implement changes

Cons

Mostly Germans in senior management doing a short rotation in the US before moving on somewhere else. Americans are not unheard of in senior management just not as many as it seems there should be.

No design work is done in the US, entirely manufacturing.

    Pros

    Generous uniforms, lease program is okay, co-workers are great!

    Cons

    WAY too much conflict with other departments - very hostile environment. Compensation is not the best. Automotive has no future. No managers have a degree or advanced degrees which is very sad considering the product. Very top heavy - at least one salary employee for every hourly employee. Product is not the most innovative considering the 'old' big three have had similar technology for years. A LOT of micro-management from Germany and managers in general. Too many managers and not enough workers. Everyone wants to report problems but no one wants to be part of the solution.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding behind your prestigous brand and start treating people like people instead of dogs!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The Employee lease program is generous
    Cafeteria offers food of acceptable quality at an affordable price
    Safety is a primary concern

    Cons

    Close German oversight does not allow for the "American Way"
    Dirty Bathrooms where tours are not taken
    Dangerous place to work
    Do not want to invest money into employees
    Strict about time (lunches) but generally require salaried employees to work a lot of uncompensated overtime

    Advice to Management

    Stop running the plant like it is in Germany, it isn't. The pay and benefits are not competitive, stop hiding behind your prestigious brand and step up to the plate as an employer.
