    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

    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

    Honda really cares about all of their associates and strive to prove that on a daily base as well ad all of their customers as well! A great company to work for!

    Cons

    One of the con's are the family's that get broken apart either due to the extra marital affairs or the fact that you are required to work B shift for so many years before ever getting A shift!

    Lots of opportunity for advancement & growthwith retirements and resignations.

    Benefits continue to decline (pension = gone, health insurance is worse every year) without increase in salary to compensate the difference. No flexibility in hours. Declining cleanliness.

    Advice to Management

    Put people first again, they will make profits happen.

    I have been working at Honda of America Mfg. (More than 10 years)

    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.
