    Great people. Welcoming environment. Good experience.

    I worked at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposed to manufacturing and a large company environment. Everyone has a sense of being apart of the same team, which i think is partially attributed to everyone wearing the same Honda whites uniforms.

    Cons

    Since it is a large company, it is possible to not understand what other departments are working on or towards. Location is pretty rural. A lot of employees have been there a long time and seem to have lost enthusiasm.

    I worked at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The main advantage to working at HTM is stability. If you are their type, i.e you lack ambition and just want to do as little as possible until you retire, OR you enjoy more structure than prison, you won't find a better place. Additionally, the insurance is good (though that has been degrading).

    Cons

    The cons are many: toxic culture, below average pay, working with "engineers" who have no education or real training, trumpeting merit based opportunity yet never following through, treating professional worse than "associates" who have not tangible skills outside Honda, very inflexible scheduling, back breaking life work/balance, just to name a few.

    Also, unless you are willing to drink the Kool-Aid, you'll never advance, and if you don't advance, you'll never get tangible raises.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize leaders. Once you get that down, give them what they need to lead and get out of their way. Length of service doesn't necessarily equate to knowledge or ability. Spend money to improve the working life of your TALENT.

    I have been working at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for HTM provides challenging opportunities, fast paced projects, terrific benefits, and overtime for most employees. It also affords an opportunity to work with groups both international and domestic.

    Cons

    HTM is very far away from any major city, with the closest city having around 11,000 residents. I have also noticed that they favor experience over credentials in many situations, which can cause problems when trying to complete engineering projects.

    I worked at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America as an intern

    Pros

    Team oriented, good benefits and facilities

    Cons

    Very rigid from top to bottom, not very flexible with working hours

    Advice to Management

    Use a bit more of a conventional American model than the Japanese philosophy

    I worked at Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sign on bonus, good benefits, decent pay, clean work environment, properly up kept machinery, uniforms provided, gym and decent food in cafeteria

    Cons

    During shut downs engineers are expected to work, can't be late to clock in even tho you have to walk 15 mins from car to dressing room to clock in, the clicks and groups of people are distrubing. 65% of the people that work there and are married get divorced. Management is not management.

    Advice to Management

    Lost focus

    Pros

    Steady employment. Does not believe I layoffs and generally most associates only lose their jobs due to their own actions

    Cons

    Managmemt is very diconnected with the actual situation. The company try's not to single out associates that do not hold their own

    Advice to Management

    Hold the associates more responsible and allow your lower managements groups to dis spline them with out fear of their own job

    Pros

    The health benefits are great. The plant has a nice gym / activity center. It is a very clean place to work.

    Cons

    Very departmentalized, toxic management, no value for education, below average pay, very slow advancement potential, very structured, professional employees are treated like production workers.

    Advice to Management

    Make it possible for new professional associates to envision their career at HTM.
