    Pros

    If you fully apply yourself to your career, Honda is a large company in which you will be able to explore a multitude of options. Training is widely available for engineers. The ability to earn overtime is a commodity unheard of in industry. The annual profit sharing also is a very nice benefit. Lots of lessons can be learned through the shear scale of this company's work (people and technical).

    Cons

    Long hours can at times be required. The quality of work is directly dependent on the ability of the management to distribute it (This does not always happen appropriately). It's a massive manufacturing effort which at times can be more related to production numbers than work quality.

    Advice to Management

    Continually push to hire young engineers and business professionals willing to push this company into a more advanced state of manufacturing.
