    I worked at Nissan North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are quite good, especially the employee lease program (if you are a direct employee). Wide variety of roles and groups, so it's possible to find many different types of work within the company.

    Cons

    High pressure atmosphere, lots of time required, including late evenings and weekends, ability to move between groups can be hindered, depending on which group you may be moving from, and which manager you may be attempting to move away from.

    Advice to Management

    The inability to move to different roles to round out your career experience is definitely not what I expected when I hired into such a large company. I believe this needs to be addressed, if Nissan expects to keep employees for more than a few years, or if they want to foster well-rounded employees.

    I worked at Nissan North America full-time

    Pros

    Depending on your boss hard work is very much recognized and appreciated. The company is stable and once you get in you can pretty much count on a job as long as you want it.

    Cons

    It is a large bureaucracy and it can seem like you are fighting against a large contingent that has no interest in striving for stretch goals. Also HR is inept.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with the HR department.
