    It's a very large corporation so you aren't going to walk to the front hall and chat with the folks running it about what's on your mind.

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

    Pros

    Lear tries to offer its employees some extra perks, mainly in the Southfield campus, like summer schedule (half day Fridays) and holiday parties for the whole family.

    Cons

    Lear operates at very low cost at the operation level, which makes raising the bar very difficult with the customers. Spending is at the forefront of all decisions, above quality (for example, spending money on containment and investing in new technology to prevent issues from escaping, but mainly adding more people to the plants to complete the work).

    Advice to Management

    Lear has to re-prioritize quality and customer satisfaction over quarterly record profits and record sales. Quality metrics are reflecting a tight spending culture at the operation level, which limits the ability to deliver a quality product.
