Nice place to learn but too much time to grow up.Dec 14, 2019 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
You can learn a lot. Very good company in term of process about product development (not so good for the research). You can work very close to the product and you can see at the end your contribution.
Not easy to grow up (salary speaking) and to achieve high management positions.Continue reading

Wonderful place to work with many diverse opportunitiesMar 17, 2016 - Design Release Engineer in Auburn Hills, MIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Working at FCA as a Structutal Engineer has been a huge part of me growing into a successful engineer. They offered me opportunities other companies would not due to my degree. Start time is flexible within reason and my management in my area in particular is amazing. I've never worked with so many people that have come together to make sure I succeeded in my job. It really feels like a team and not an individual based company like so many others.
The biggest con is being a contractor. The availability to go direct is slim. So, if you're a contracted employee, make sure to pick a contracting house that will work for you and not against you. There are a lot of contractors that have left due to the inability to get a raise (this, fortunately is not my case).

FCA still trying to figure things outDec 10, 2016 - Financial Analyst in Auburn Hills, MIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Please note that all departments, groups, and managers are completely different so the reviews will vary wildly based on personal experience. But overall, I am in a fully successful team due mostly to our manager. Our manager shields us from the politics of upper management and other groups and allows us perform our jobs without monkeying around in our business. Good pay, annual bonus, union vacation schedule, and great name recognition for working in a global company. Also, when FCA took over they cut the hierarchy in the management so even as a staff you are only 4-5 steps away from the CFO. Depending on your position and group, you also get very high exposure to senior management all the way to senior VP's and the CFO.
There are many challenges. Starting with the fact many managers are promoted on what they have done and not what they can do. They receive little to no training in people management and quickly get a feeling of seniority which they think entitles them to demean others and boss them around. When something goes wrong senior management only goes to the manager and of course things roll down hill to the lower staff. Certain individuals in senior management have taken it upon themselves to find and correct these issues but it is a slow work in process. The biggest complaint I here is work life balance. It almost seems standard for most to work until the earlier evening. It seems management confuses an employees willingness to work long hours as being equivalent to career drive and commitment. This is a dangerous precedent to set. Typically improving processes is a good thing, however here is just means that instead of going home at a regular time you need to step up and fill in for others who can't do their job. The big issue is the lack of internal communication which leads to many fire drills and stressful situations. Usually, these fire drills are the result of employee turnover and the new employees don't know what needs to be done until after the fact. This is where managers need to step in and help but that happens few and far between. Overall though, some in management recognize there is a problem and are trying to fix it. I would definitely recommend giving FCA a shot for the potential they have as a company.Continue reading

Terrible ManagementFeb 27, 2023 - Graphic Designer in Auburn Hills, MIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good benefits and great coworkers.
Management was horrible and was not prepared for me to work onsite for three months.

Unit LeaderJan 2, 2017 - Anonymous Intern in Belvidere, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Learned a lot here. This job requires a lot of hours. You will be working a lot of overtime, and your paycheck will reflect it. Give you a lot of time to train.
Management changes opinions on things and can get confusing when being told several different orders to follow.Continue reading

Great company if you're willing to blaze your own trailAug 3, 2014 - Development Engineer in Auburn Hills, MIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Very laid back atmosphere compared to other OEM's. Allows you to pursue opportunities that may be outside of your work scope. Organization is flat which allows you to work directly with upper management and build networks quickly. Hard work does yield fast recognition here. Company is small enough where news travels fast.
Company's lack of core solid processes allow people who may not have a "go get it" attitude to fall between the cracks. Promotions happen by performance and networks.....mostly networks. Technical/dry personalities may struggle here if their goal is to rise to upper management. Career development will be 100%your responsibility. Nobody will do it for you. The working experience here is COMPLETELY based upon who your director or VP is. Different organizations are like totally different companies. Blocking of employees attempting to go from one organization to another happens often.Continue reading

Chrysler as a place to workJan 6, 2010 - ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Open door management style and hence team environment makes this a good place to work. There are opportunities to work in numerous areas of engineering, marketing, and manufacturing.
The lack of direction by senior management was the reason I left in November of 2008. That may have changed with the new management.Continue reading

FCASep 2, 2022 - Facilities and Maintenance ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
This is a great place to have a career if you are competitive
Management is compartmentalized into silos and it's critical that you are seen as 'on the team' Older and more experienced employees are being quietly being pushed out.Continue reading

Very stressful work environment.Sep 3, 2014 - Maintenance SupervisorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great benefits. Excellent pay. Work as many hours as you want.
Corporate goals, creed, and policies not followed at the plant level. Management talks a good talk but fails to follow through. Supervisors are treated horribly. Lots of stress and management refuses to set goals that are even remotely within reach. No ability to get rid of bad workers. UAW protects the bad workers and management won't back you up.Continue reading
