    Pros

    Great benefits (Health, Dental, Vision, 401K, Life Insurance) 3 Shifts, not the best hours, but you start, and eventually make your way to the good shifts. The work is not crazy hard or physically taxing, however if you don't like repetition this probably is not the job for you. Great pay and great people most of the time to work with. If you are a Veteran they really take care of you, which I love to see, Management or Hourly.

    Cons

    Some of the hours aren't family friendly. Not much to complain about though, they take care of their people.

    Advice to Management

    Practice people/social skills before being hired. Keep and open mind, it's a different type of settinf

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here that you can't get at any other OEM or automotive supplier. The pay, benefits and salary are all less than other OEMs and tier 1 suppliers.

    Cons

    In my 1.5 years at FCA I had 3 different managers and 3 different teams. I came to realize quickly that verbal abuse, bullying and berating in front of coworkers was commonplace. The pay, bonuses and benefits are less than what you would receive at any other OEM or tier 1 supplier. The environment is extremely hostile and unfriendly due to the unrealistic expectations placed on associates by upper management. After being creamed and cursed at by my manager in front of my coworkers several times, I asked to switch to a role in a different department. I was told that regardless of circumstance it is the policy that you have to stay put for 2 years. I left the company for another OEM shortly after.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility give early on. Fast paced. Great people. Overtime. They'll pay for you to go back to school. Great medical.

    Cons

    Old school management types run everything. Everyone has a "I have to cover my arse" attitude. The hierarchy is really layered.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a culling of management. Bring in outside talent. The good old boy's club at the top is ruining the company.

    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?

    Pros

    Great access to great products

    Cons

    Merit Raises are few and far between. Competency is secondary to a "yes" mentality

    Advice to Management

    Look longer term than the next 12 months with employees. Necessary experience is walking out the door every day

    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.
