    Pros

    Line associates can make really good money with all the OT offered.
    Free uniforms
    Better than avg health care
    OK 401 plan
    Stable employment

    Cons

    Favoritism is the rule of law
    The level of stress and amount of responsibility has to be experienced to be believed
    The PPR process is dehumanizing.Ratings are decided well ahead of the actual performance review and you WILL be forced to give poor ratings to associates who deserve better because the bell curve must be met.
    Archaic work rules.I mean really,we are supposed to be excited that we can have a water bottle at our workstation?
    Performers are not rewarded but given the crumbs left over after the managers get their favorites placed in strategic positions that serve to support themselves
    Total lack of respect for injured associates,who are labeled frequent flyers or worse
    Concerted effort to pressure older associates to retire

    Advice to Management

    Have the common decency to lose the arrogance. It's ok to look me in the eye instead of looking at the floor when we pass each other in the hall. Learn how to be truthful at your own town meetings because it's very obvious that you aren't. Finally,replace the department managers who have abused their associates for so long(yes,you know exactly who they are).

    Pros

    Great health benefits, fitness center, credit union and a clean work environment for manufacturing

    Cons

    This is a very unprofessional environment to work in. Training is nonexistent. The employees that have been around for years are will not be willing to mentor or train you. Their thought process is that “it took me 8 years to learn my job, why should I teach it to you.” Although this company is supposed to be a flat organization, the only aspect of being flat is that everyone wears the same white uniform. People are put in management positions based on either who they know or the number of years they have worked for the company. Lack of leadership skills is evident throughout the organization, in addition to the lack of respect for others. If you are looking for work/life balance, this is not the company that will provide it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Pros

    Overtime and extra days off.

    Cons

    Soul sucking work. When you turn 30 you will realize that you made a terrible mistake and you are now a Honda slave. Engineers are treated with contempt and used as general labor. If you are on the fence about the company like I was. Avoid it. I mad a terrible mistake and wasted a year of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Change your ways. HR has been know to use unethical practices
