    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The overall salary and benefit package was excellent. For energetic people looking to get a leg up, it's a great place to work. Expect to put a lot of hours in on the job.

    Cons

    The automotive business can be very demanding on a person's time. A full-time job frequently requires 50+ hours per week in order to fulfill the requirements. Those who try to get by on working less are often out the door when there's a company or departmental reorg. In the 33 years I worked for the company, there were 10 major reorgs. I survived all of them, was never laid off, but saw many good people go out the door basically because they didn't put the time in.

    Pros

    Pay is decent but hours at the plants are insanely different from corporate but seen as same or even less than.
    Pays OT at plants for salary but only after free hours given.
    Good dental & vision plans, medical alright.

    Cons

    Military mentality with much of upper management. Good ones left. Require certain amount of years exp before ability to apply for promotion, no matter skill or results.
    Yearly review is set-up so ridiculously.

    Advice to Management

    listen to some of the other employees

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Above average pay (if you are willing to fight for it), decent benefits, opportunity for advancement if you are willing to work hard, being able to build products that people actually care about. As the old regime exits, there are more opportunities for new ideologies to take root and flourish but it's going to be a long process and not happen without a fight. If you have the guts to stay in the fight you can make a difference but not without sacrifice.

    Cons

    Definitely not for everyone. If you are the sensitive type, you should look for a different industry to work in. Work life balance is not an option if you want upward mobility, management uses fear as the only real motivation, leadership positions are chosen based on social skills more than actual ability, mandatory overtime, no clear direction, company doesn't practice what it preaches, integrity is lacking, and pretty much every other corporate cliche you can think of. Product quality is not improving due to bad decisions at all levels. Waste is a big problem also.

    Advice to Management

    Set more realistic/achievable goals, no one likes failing at everything because all their goals are unobtainable stretch goals. Use more contract employees to front-load new product launches so that the direct hire employees can focus on the long term/more critical work. Actually start using the methodologies you speak so highly of how they were intended to be used, instead of trying to figure out ways to keep "improving" them. The methodologies were fine just the way they were when you first decided to start using them.

    Pros

    Good place to start out in the Automotive industry if you are ready for "baptism by fire".

    Cons

    Without a very strong mentor and/or sponsor, career prospects are very bleak.

    Pros

    This company has very good pay for the area. Atmosphere is generally fun and relaxed.

    Cons

    The repetitive work wears on your body. Not climate controlled...gets very hot and humid during the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Better air circulation during the summer...use exhaust fans on the roof to pull the heat and stink from the day out.
