    I worked at Mazda North American Operations as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great corporate setup. Qa lead was very hands-off. You were trusted to do your job and a brand of understanding and communication is fostered with fellow testers and developers.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, ideal for Qa with experience but not for a new to the field tester. If you know Selenium you write your own ticket.

    I worked at Mazda North American Operations full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, it is a small enough company where your voice matters. Family is important to the higher ups.

    Cons

    Small company in comparison to other automakers which can be bad sometimes. Pay is a little less than other automakers, but benefits out way and people stay longer here than other companies.

    Pros

    The manager and co-workers are friendly and really good at giving feedback.
    Over all it was a great experience to intern here.

    Cons

    It's a small studio to work at and lots of project coming your way if you are in the branding part of the team. There is no constant flow of work, it's up and down quite drastically.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. It is a place to contribute and grow with your department. There are many opportunities to create your own success.

    Cons

    Career opportunities could be better. No education reimbursement is something I think about when wanting to do more for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back education reimbursement. Add additional hands-on training or offer to pay for work-related training. Create opportunities for cross-functional training opportunities.
