Doesn't Recommend
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.

    I worked at BMW Manufacturing as an intern

    Pros

    -Lots of hands-on experience with pre-production and production level vehicles
    -Great learning environment - everyone I worked with wanted me to succeed

    Cons

    -New hire program (EOM - Engineering Operations Management) is not in the best shape right now

    -Fix the co-op and EOM program to ensure new and possible future hires are able to grow as employees and professionals
