    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits (Half days on Friday in the summer, 401k match, Tuition Reimbursement). Community involvement (Mentor Programs, Sponsoring Events, Community Service). Nice Atmosphere. Ability to grow within the organization.

    Cons

    There seems to be a disconnect between employees who do the work and the upper management. Old School Business Culture is slowly changing but sometimes doesn't seem fast enough. Ability to remove problem people is non existent. Every decision revolves around money/cost.

    Pros

    Lear does the right thing in business and for its employees. Company at all levels allows employees to make decisions. Great atmosphere.

    Cons

    No flex time. Other than that it is a great company. In the past this was harder to say, but the management team has integrity.

    I have been working at Lear Corporation

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility given to employees. You are allowed to take on as much as you can handle. Comraderie is developed among employees. Lots of change - a very dynamic environment. Nice campus. Global opportunities. Flat organization, with lots of upper management exposure. Open door policy of management.

    Cons

    Inflexible work schedule, no flex hours, long hours, poor company and industry financial position. Not supportive of work/family balance. Lack of technology or R&D investment. Regular salaried lay-offs over the years are stressful for employees, though an effective method for keeping a lean and strong team. Strong reliance on GM and Ford makes for difficult operating environment.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Freshers can start their career in this company. It is a good place to learn and earn. But don't count on working on the cutting edge of technology. This is more of a manufacturing company which does not care for technology. The technological advances this company embraces is from the stone age. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Nothing great about technology in this place. You'd get to work on stone age technologies here. Don't expect good career growth, you'd get stuck in one level for a few years and even after that there is no guarantee that you'd grow.
