    I have been working at Mazda North American Operations full-time

    Pros

    Great company, great team environment, outstanding product. This company allows you the flexibility to be creative. Being that's it's a relatively small company here in the US if you do great work you will be noticed, the flip side to that is if you do bad work you'll be noticed.

    Cons

    The frequent reorgs can be unnerving but if you're a good employee you'll get through it. If you're looking for a corporate job where you can just show up and collect a paycheck this company is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    We have the best product in the business that no one knows about, we need better marketing.

    I have been working at Mazda North American Operations as an intern

    Pros

    The company awesome and very technologically advanced at the current location near the Irvine Spectrum Center. The internship offered me lots of insights into the businesses from different departments. Mazda is going through changes and moving more towards a data-driven firm. I learned a lot from fellow full-time employees and my manager is great. Our CFO paid for our lunch one time without us knowing that he did. Everybody's nice and friendly and I enjoy going to the company everyday. Everything has been pretty awesome so far, looking forward to the next couple months.

    Cons

    No hot water on my floor :( sad... I secretly take cold water from the fridge and microwave

    Advice to Management

    Grateful for everything provided to me.

    I have been working at Mazda North American Operations full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Mazda for more than 5 years and find it a great place to work. Product is second to none, people are great to work with and the company is definitely headed in the right direction. Career oriented people that put in an honest day’s work will find there are numerous opportunities for personal growth and advancement. Unfortunately, like any company, some employees choose to blame others and play the victim rather than acknowledge their own poor work ethic. At the Mazda Northeast Region I truly believe my career is up to me, not somebody else.

    Cons

    Salaries/Compensation are competitive, but a little more would send a strong message on where we see ourselves among other manufacturers.

    Advice to Management

    We’re on the right track, stay the course!

    Pros

    Great company with lots of potential. Take control of your future because no one at Mazda no anywhere else will. Learn the business and either get happy being bored or use it as a spring board for your future.

    Cons

    Everyone is out for themselves and with the exception of a rare few none of the management has an interest in development of their team members.

    Advice to Management

    Reset, refresh, restart.
