    I worked at Lear Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people. Active groups creating events for young professionals.

    Cons

    Very local, most people were from the area originally. Being from the outside it was alienating.

    Advice to Management

    Try to diversify your workforce more.

    I have been working at Lear Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The culture is great - hardworkers with trust and cooperation working toward the common goal of what's in Lear's best interest. Excellent management and there's a lot of focus on community involvement.

    Cons

    Of all the places I've worked, Lear is the worst in being flexible with hours, and working from home. The executive management watches cameras to see who arrives after 8:00 on the nose - they really do! All the managers wear shirts and ties everyday (as if to project dominance or for a clear class separation - very hierarchical), they are very lax with political correctness to the point that people who aren't easily offended can be here, daily. There is so much potential, they just need to take the step into the 21st century!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like responsible adults, not kindergarteners. Give more flexibility with hours, ditch the shirt and ties, and work to make it a more inclusive, comfortable environment.
