    Pros

    Good salary, good overtime pay, plenty of opportunity to get involved, however you can just do your job and go home if you want to

    Cons

    Not enough PTO first two years, not good at retaining young talent in engineering, not very progressive with women engineers

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend money to make money, competitors beat the brakes off of Honda for innovation and technology, although that's not really manufacturing's problem that is a design issue

    Pros

    Very good benefits package that is slowly eroding.

    Cons

    Never fix any chronic problems. Don't do much of what they say they will. Throwing many man-hours at a problem is always the better solution rather than actually fixing the root cause.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk about leadership. Lead. By example. And give useful feedback routinely.

    Pros

    Job stability, good people, travel opportunities. Close to city. Good products. Good community partner. Decent benefits but declining. On site workout facility.

    Cons

    Each year our benefits are reduced. We are being asked to pay healthcare premiums and our out of pocket is significantly next year. Our pay increase do not keep up with what we are being asked to pay. My take home pay has decreased the past 2 years.

    We are also tasked to reduce manpower and take on more job responsibilities each year. We are asked to work more efficiently, however we keep adding more tasks and never take any tasks away.

    Advice to Management

    You are hurting moral with your associates. You will soon have a mass exodus of good associates if you keep this up.

    I worked at Honda of America Mfg. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice pay even for a temp. Air conditioning in summer. Easy jobs that do not cause strain on your body. Get to rotate jobs every two hours so you are not doing the same job all day.

    Hard to get hired in. 30 day lay off after two years of being a temp. Might get called back, might not.

    Advice to Management

    I really never had an issue with managrment. Everyone was nice!
