    Pros

    Ample opportunities for growth along with plenty of projects "in need" to make your positive mark. Great people, exposure to further broaden your plastics injection molding experience and knowledge in the field of Automotive! IAC is highly visible and awesome on the resume. Great and generous Compensation pkg to include generous relocation services! !!

    Cons

    High Priority : improvement greatly needed implementing 5s, Lean mfg, the upper mgmt including Supervisors appears to have a revolving door so that desperately needs to be addressed, along with well-Below Housekeeping standards and expectations. Otherwise, great plastics mfg. Go for it!

    Advice to Management

    I would advise Corporate to PRIORITIZE investigate and determine the ROOT CAUSE of of such a high turnover in management at Springfield, TN plant , OWN IT then develop the action plan to higher RETENTION RATE of mgmt. You've lost some good guys who wanted to stay, yet something just isn't right or I'd love to still be there making a positive impact.

    I worked at International Automotive Components full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A wide range of equipment to learn on from Fanuc and Motoman robots, Allen Bradley, Siemens, Omron, and Direct Logic PLC's to Panelview, Red Lion, etc.. HMI's. Not to mention Krupp and Sterling presses. I enjoyed working with the people there and decent pay for the area.

    Cons

    The place has old and outdated equipment. Some of the new equipment being installed have inherent design flaws and the work schedule is taxing. Far too many mandatory hours. It's a dirty job, from hydraulic leaks, fiberglass, grease and plastic smoke not to mention water condensation in drain pans.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of good and hard working guys, especially in the maintenance department. Don't work them so hard and give them a little time off. I believe you would be better for it.

    I have been working at International Automotive Components full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay. I really can't complain about what I make. The benefits have been eroded to almost nothingness, so one bad day (severe illness or injury) and that "good pay" is irrelevant. Some of the work can be rewarding, but it's the rare occasion.

    Cons

    -Shoddy communication; that saying "the left hand doesn't know what the right one is doing" applies.
    -Reliance on "band aids" to fix everything, some going on 20 years.
    -Nepotism and Cronyism are standard hiring practices.
    -OT every weekend, most often mandatory. No work/life balance.
    -"When in doubt, ship it out" is the company motto, because it's cheaper to deal with reject fees than expedite fees. Unfortunately, when bosses OK bad parts, they conveniently forget when they come back, and try to write up/fire employees.
    -FO wants to change culture, but no one there interprets the change the same way.
    -Many are stuck in 1960/70's way of doing business, including how employees are treated.
    -The "good ones", those that connect with employees, treat them right and get good output, are often seen as a threat... They don't last long.
    -Unless you're part of the Good Ol' Boys Club, good luck moving into something more meaningful. If you're a minority, you're better off looking somewhere more progressive, that actually resides in the 21st century.

    Advice to Management

    There are many things that could be said, but it falls on deaf ears. I get that not every request can be honored, but employee input is only touted as a show, to make people think they're being heard.
