    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of overtime when sales are good. 4x10 work schedule is great for those with enough seniority to hold day shift. World Class Manufacturing principles are having a positive impact in the operations and work environment. the opportunity to work on and learn a large variety of machine types

    Cons

    Alternate Work Schedule; 4 days of 10 hours, not family friendly for low seniority workers who are on the off shifts or nights. Forced overtime can further interfere with a balanced life.

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Initial offer had a decent salary considering the good benefits. Accepted salary negotiation to reach a well above market value salary.
    -Automatic contributions to 401k and matching
    -Okay healthcare options
    -Friendly, goal driven environment
    -Will send you to training for various softwares
    -Good career opportunities taking the place of people who leave for GM and Ford...
    -Building is nice with a big cafeteria and large windows

    Cons

    -The work life balance isn't perfect. It's a bit up and down depending on where a program is in development.
    -The technical prowess isn't as high as I expected it to be. Many experienced people have left to GM or Ford for pay raises leaving a hole in talent. Too much emphasis is placed on benchmarking other vehicles that are assumed to be good rather than spending time to do original, thoughtful design.
    -The design studio has a much better working environment. More ergonomic setup, open layout workplace, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stagger the products correctly to maintain a less variable workflow. Renovate the cube farms to the same layout as the design studio. How do you think the startups in California appeal to young engineers they poach from Detroit?

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everything at CTC is under one roof. Nail and hair salon, doctor's office and pharmacy on site which is very convenient. They recently added a dry cleaning service as well.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance is not good! Parking is absolutely horrible. Hard to find a parking spot unless you arrive by 6:30AM or are handicap. Yearly review process is not good and more often than not it demotivates their employees as it is a forced distribution curve.

    Advice to Management

    Forced distribution curves are wrong and not beneficial to the employee or company. Need to improve the work-life balance. Need more opportunities for growth within company.
