    Cerebus cannot wait to sell Chrysler--Why Chrysler is not the place for you!

    Jan 12, 2009 - Senior Manager in Detroit, MI

    Pros

    Chrysler used to be a great place to work back in the 1990's. Chrysler recruited the best and diverse candidates into their Chrysler Institute of Engineering (CIE) Program which was a two year six month rotational management trainee program, whereby Chrysler paid for you to earn a masters degree. The CIE and the Engineering Graduate Training (EGT) programs lured some of the best talent to the company. Unfortunately they have since reduced the number of CIEs (only from interns and no direct hires). Chrysler has a hard time retaining CIEs and talent in the company. There were also some good career opportunities in manufacturing operations, if you are willing to sacrafice work life balance.

    Cons

    There are many downsides of working at Chrysler. Chrysler has poor work life balance and does not support women in manufacturing who choose to have children (pregnancy and maternity leave). There is too much personal vendittas and too much politics. In manufacturing, the management personnel are ruled by the union; management constantly tries to appease the union instead of doing the right thing, they do what is easy. The manufacturing goals are unrealistics and are set up to ensure you fail (unless you cheat); senior management awards bad behavior and as a result, the good people are not retained. The bonuses the Sr Exec and COO/CEO recieve are not aligned with company performance...they get rich when they should be sacraficing for the company. Lastly, poor production design,planning and execution/launch are a major issue at Chrysler as well.

    So far so good....

    Pros

    The company genuinely wants to impress change upon it's workers to improve sustained success - there are 16 leadership skills they expect of each of its employees. Some of those I believe are taken to heart and appreciated by leadership. The exterior appearance of effort appears impressive - the company is trying to build a good retention program.

    Cons

    I believe the flexibility of work life balance is still not to par with the rest of the world. The 16 leadership qualities are valued highly depending on your leadership, whether they are old school or new. Sometimes it's best to be the nice passive employee if you want to build your career vs. challenging status quo. There are salaried union workers in the office doing what I would consider an administrative level job that could be done cheaper by a non-union work-force. I work many hours as a salaried employee while I haven't heard a peep about bonuses, raises or profit sharing from leadership at my level. I cannot stand the stigma that salaried office workers have gotten over the years of being the 'suits making the big bucks' (almost as if we do nothing to contribute to success of the organization). Many union line workers make a heck of a lot more than I do and get paid for every hour worked. God bless the union but they all need to recognize that our paycheck comes from the same place and their is value in every job all of us are hired to do.

    Pros

    Great benefits and people are good to work with in various areas. They are really working on trying to improve work life balance and morale in teams.

    Cons

    Less opportunities for advancement. Feel like they are replacing people who are leaving with next level down so less opportunity to move up through the organization.

    Pros

    It allows the ability to be involved with some of the newest technologies around. You also get to see something worthwhile completed by the end of the day.

    Cons

    At times you must sacrifice and give up any work/life balance you may have had. Weekends and holidays are often spent working.

    Pros

    Money: The money is pretty much the only reason I stayed as long I did. No time and half though. It's all straight time after 11 hours. But you'll get plenty of it. Sunday's and holidays regularly.

    Cons

    WCM. It's a joke. Management is incredibly disrespectful to unit leaders. No work life balance especially if your lucky enough to be placed on c crew. That's Mon-Tues night's and Fri-Sat mornings.
