Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- Pay
- You do get medical benefits......but they are being reduced.
- On site wellness center.............if you have the time or energy to go.

Cons

- Hard Physical Labor
- Long daily hours. Some departments at Engine plant are 7 days mandatory
- You get 15 days vacation but on average 15 weekends are taken away by forced mandatory production. No real benefit here!
- Most job injuries are disputed by the company forcing the employee to fight for the benefits deserved
- No job security for those with many years of service. Jobs are being contracted out on a regular basis.

Advice to Management

- Start talking to the employees that have put many years in making the company what it was!
- Promote people based on experience, knowledge and training, not on who you know.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to talk to your co-workers during the work day.

    Cons

    Monotonous, mind-numbing, work; low wages; no advancement; your life belongs to Honda - family, school, outside interests - say "Adios, Amigos!"; 6 day work weeks common (and after a while, time and a half is not very motivating); most of staff is contingency - don't even THINK of being hired on as a Honda associate, and that is the only way to earn a good wage here; benefits STINK! Don't even THINK about getting sick. Keep a close eye on your paycheck each week......

    Advice to Management

    Who is running this circus?? The "new robots" we have can't be fixed, and you're getting more new ones?? I'll never see the end of a work day!!

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people
    Exciting work
    Opportunities to learn

    Cons

    Slow decision making process
    Limited opportunity to advance
    Micro-managers

    Advice to Management

    Start with the basic organizational structure and start over. Stop pandering to mediocrity and start looking at the select few employees that are carrying the load. Keep them happy, you can easily replace the rest. Stop promoting solely on the basis of technical skill and look for people with the vision and charisma to be LEADERS.
