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

Pros

Stable job
Decent benefits
Good vacation policy

Cons

Rampant confusion and mismanagement at department levels
Inconsistent application of policies, many decisions bases on hidden favoritism
No rules, only "guidelines"
Everything subject to business needs clause
The motto seems to be "Ignorance is bliss and the truth is not welcome"
People live in fear of failure more than anticipation of success

Advice to Management

Too much time spent with form instead of function, stop worrying about having all your charts and graphs looking pretty and start paying attention to the core business of making cars.

Stop punishing the innovators

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

    Pros

    You have real responsibilities. Projects are meaningful and you get to see them through from start to finish, which is very rewarding. There are constant challenges with new vehicle designs, manufacturing problems, factory renovations, etc. It's a fast paced workplace that rarely has you feeling bored.

    Cons

    Not all areas are as exciting as others. Some jobs can be very monotonous and repetitive since this is a mass production factory. However, the company is big, so there are usually opportunities to try out something else that might interest you.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to rotate through various areas within the company so they can understand and appreciate the complexity and interdependence of all of our functions. It will open their eyes and help them perform better within their own roles.
