    Pros

    Great place to work in theory. They are working to try to improve the corporate culture and create a place for true innovation and collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    People don't quit bad jobs, they quit bad managers. In order to retain talented employees, the company needs to devote a little bit more energy and resources in making sure that their leaders at all levels fit within the corporate culture and the right people are in the right roles, not just because of someone they know.

    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, active, and stable company. Focused on doing the right thing. Is trying to walk the walk for being a preferred place to work with more flexible schedules, relaxing dress code policy, etc. Great start, but it will take time and energy to continue the path.

    Cons

    Large company. Small incremental changes will still take longer to accomplish. Not every innovative idea can come to fruition, nor can all be investigated without dedicated focus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the path. Work to train downstream staff with what the new culture of work is trying to accomplish. Make real training available, not simply links to videos.

    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.
