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

    Pros

    Great place to get experience.
    An industry that drives constant innovation in its products.
    Good location, Columbus is a hidden gem in the midwest.
    Good medical benefits.

    Cons

    No flexibility in the manufacturing departments.

    Too many "benefits" left to individual department discretion - no consistency across the company.

    Salary is generally 20% less than similar jobs at other OEM's.

    No ability to easily move across the company - department managers can, and often do, block associates from changing jobs.

    Poor communication of goals and objectives

    Company has shifted from a culture of building consensus among stake holders to being managed from a top-down direction.

    No accountability for poor performance.

    No effort, on the part of the company, to retain good engineers who work hard. No incentive for young engineers to stay and buy in.

    Advice to Management

    1. Stop benchmarking other Honda plants and take time to SERIOUSLY benchmark other OEMs in terms of salaries and benefits. We're losing good people at an alarming rate. The problem with only looking to Honda DNA for innovation is your family tree never branches.

    2. Stop preaching about going to the spot and actually do it.

    3. Consensus among stakeholders was once a fundamental way we did business. We need to get back to this way of doing business. Being top-down is no different that many of our competitors.

    4. Stop promoting people only based on business needs and actually reward high performers for just simply being good at their jobs. Someone doesn't need to lead people to be great at what they do.
