    I have been working at MAHLE Powertrain full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Privately owned company supported by parent company helps to absorb undulations typically observed in consulting & services industry. Some highly knowledgeable staff here. Parent company offers more positions for growth outside of powertrain services. Mahle also offers tuition reimbursement and cross functional training to develop leadership skills. There are some experienced hardworking members in senior staff...

    Cons

    Base salary may be enticing, but no paid overtime opportunities exist for salaried employees. Profit share and annual raises are below industry average and not really tied to employee performance. This site shows almost no connection to sister business units all over the world. Internal knowledge transfer is non existent which hinders development of strategic groups. Staffing is low with no long term vision or plan...

    Advice to Management

    It's time to address the pink elephant and resolve your management issue for good (no more band aids please!). Listen to your hardworking staff ,reward them , don't ostracize them. Treat people well and they will in turn work wonders for this company. Develop a proper road map for this facility and communicate that to the people here. People see through the same old generic top-down "global" slides presented at meetings....

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at MAHLE Powertrain full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy access to highway. Campus is kept clean.

    Cons

    Upper Management seems to be in a state of blindness when it comes to actual value of employees. Project Managers are authorized to act in any manner to anyone they deem unnecessary to the sale of the project. Worst Project Managers with which I have personally interacted in my expensive career.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to build the team. Reign the Project Managers in to create a more realistic customer expectation.
