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

Pros

learning experience:
Overview in interior systems
how not to handle team and company as a manager

Cons

No respect for personal time of employees
Highly incompetent middle management
No ambitious plans for local markets

Advice to Management

For the pune location, there seem to be 2 major problems

1. There are no ambitious (at least visible) plans to expand in the local market.
The start as an offshore center is great but expanding the company at a location without targeting the local market seems pointless. Good engineers would not want to stay in an offshore job for long, And if you keep a pool of sub standard engineers, it will be of no use for any expansion purposes. And if there are some plans to target the local market, involve the employees in that and let them know their future provided they stay with Faurecia.

2. The middle management: The middle management is comprised of the employees that have worked the longest in company. And although these people probably did a reasonable job as engineers and as team leads for a team of 5-6 engineers, they do not have any attributes of a manager. Due to this the company is being run like a labor market.

So I guess get some competent people as managers and make and share plans with the engineers.

    I have been working at Faurecia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    as faurecia have design centers, manufacturing plants, and PPV Plants(R &D) it will give wide exposure the candidate to build his carrier in any of above mentioned fields. Company provides very good training sessions. As faurecia is having its foot print in Europian countries, america, china and india and have customers like Mercedes, VW, Ford, PSA,RSA, BMW there is a huge chance to go for on-site and learn new things.

    Cons

    In india as faurecia works in only 2 city PUNE & CHENNAI candidate has to choose any of these cities to work. Compare to other companies the salary package is bit low.

    Advice to Management

    You give us the opportunities and we give you the desired results.

    I worked at Faurecia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best for fresher who can be moulded into there environment. Excellent CAD skills

    Cons

    Heavy work load & over seating, with only CAD work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Should take care of the new joinees who are not trained & skilled in Faurecia product line. Thats why people with less compensation & over stressed work load are dissatisfied & leave the job early
