    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are companies that promote having a good work-life balance, and then there are the companies that have it. Lear is a company that has it, and a great understanding of the work-life balance so many people look for. Lear always seems to be working to grow the company while keeping their employee's in focus. It is great!
    Lear is at the forefront of developing technologies, a leader in the industry and generates a feeling that all employees have the ability to contribute.

    Cons

    It is a large company and some days can feel like being lost in the shuffle. There are very few drawbacks to working at Lear.

    Advice to Management

    Improve upon current career development strategy. Identify the people that want to grow, are trying to grow themselves, and work to better both the company and employee by engaging in career development, growth and a plan. Patheer could use improvement to aid in this process. Access to HR for a career path versus speaking with a manager in all aspects may improve this as well.

    Pros

    Great Management. Challenging and fast paced. New flex time policy makes balancing work and home life much easier. Management continues to look for ways to improve work/life balance. Management does not micro manage and instead empowers you to make important decisions.

    Cons

    Great company to work for. No cons that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - 9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off)
    - Half-day Fridays in summer
    -Casual Fridays
    -Great Cafeteria food (Plum Market)
    -Team atmosphere
    -Well performing stock
    -Good benefits
    - Family comes first
    - Summer/Winter campus-wide holiday party
    - If you have a doctor appointment, no big deal to leave early
    -Supervisor always looks out for your best interest

    Cons

    - No work from home (unless there is an emergency)
    - Non-transparent pay increase process
    - Lack of training (to enhance current job skills)
    - Difficult to switch jobs internally if you do not know the right people (only person to look out for is yourself)

    Advice to Management

    Great company. Great leadership, however, one caveat. Invest more in your employees with raises, etc. It is well known internally many people leave the company because of not getting more money. People at Lear can go years without any sort of pay increase even if they receive great reviews. Managers can state you are due for a raise, however, it does not come to fruition.

    I worked at Lear Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was with the company for 10 years and left for, what I thought were, greener pastures. Completely regret the decision to leave.

    The talent at Lear is top notch starting with the strong and competent leadership.

    Opportunity for advancement is high, given you are willing to put in the work.

    The working environment is great and highly supportive.

    Cons

    To be honest, not much. The work can be a little demanding, but that is the case of all great companies in the Automotive industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
