I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

lean culture, respect for all employees - uniforms for everyone including CEO.
good products and strong flexible manufacturing processes. 2 weeks of plant shutdown every year for added vacation time.

Cons

all employees must be considered with equal respect which causes some friction with the manufacturing associates versus office associates. work schedule is not flexible, no sick days.

Advice to Management

Try to find talent in your team as the jobs (constraints) may not show case all potential talent for individuals.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, great place to start your career

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. Some abnormal rules for a professional environment (no water at desk, clock in clock out, working on the line as needed...) IF you are able to advance, the increase in pay does not match the increase in workload and responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way of encouraging professional growth. Pay more for education and recognize addition education in evaluations.

    -Promotions are a joke, and pay increase is based on the overtime worked and not on the quality or efficiency of work.

    -Do not value additional or higher education

    Despite the fact that everyone wears the same uniform, it seems to me that the Japanese and American staff do not work together on same plan. Need to improve that.
