      Pros

      MBUSA puts their employees first. Hands down. I've worked at several companies over the last 10 years and this is the first company I've truly and whole heartedly put their employees first. As a result of the COVID virus and encouraging work from home, it truly shows we have a great team at MBUSA and can work hard and efficiently despite the situation we are all in. The work-life balance is great. Even before that and currently, I truly feel MBUSA has a great structure in place for encouraging development, career growth and open communication with management. I feel empowered to do my job and reach out to management when needed. Overall anyone working here would have a great experience in their career growth. Mr. Nicholas Speeks is a great leader as well. He joined us less than a year ago but I am incredibly supportive of all his decisions and support that has happened this year despite the uncertain times we are in.

      Cons

      The only cons I have are to personal preferences to benefits that may not effect the entire organization at all. The car employee lease program is great! But overall the health benefits and 401K match are great!

      Pros

      Working at Mercedes-Benz has many perks such a good benefits, employee lease option, 401k matching and many social events and gathering. The company has common goals align and has its best interests in the customers. They offer a very good work life balance if you want it.

      Cons

      Many operations and changes are driven by the parent company Daimler. Due to cost savings many of the once very intriguing benefits have been reduced and are par or sub-par to industry standards. Much of the wages was compensated by the benefits but with lesser benefits now wages are no longer reasonable.

      Pros

      MBUSA provides a great work/life balance valuing families of co-workers. You are pushed outside of your comfort zone, but you are not “thrown to the wolves”. Everyone is a team and values the progression of the company and will do what it takes in order to see it succeed. They care about their employees which makes drives me to be a better employee everyday. You are encouraged to learn and better yourself as an employee and person. This is a very healthy place to work and I hope to see many many years there.

      Cons

      Your work experience could vary greatly on who your DM is.

      Pros

      Provides great PTO Cafe has great breakfast *I was forced to type at least 5 words.. I wanted to stop at PTO*

      Cons

      Everything about the Accounting and Finance department is a s*** show starting with the General Manger and trickling down to the supervisors Miserable work environment Long hours No training No guidance on how to complete work No one speaks to each other at work No growth opportunity in the department (very few within the company) Management are all know-it-all's who know nothing The term "work-life balance" is foreign to the Accounting and Finance department Terrible salary for the amount of work and stress put on by the company
