    I have been working at Nissan North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Medical is the best I've had. Multiple plans to choose from including an HMO. Dental is great. Eyecare is fair (prefer VSP).
    Great teamwork in most shops.
    Very low cost 1 year leases for full time employees.

    Cons

    HR - inhouse HR has no clue on most items and are no help. As a manager, they can't even handle the normal HR items like policy enforcement without changing their minds a dozen times. Most items are outsourced to a 1-800 number.
    Canton plant is dirty. There has been some cleaning up now that the union drive is over. Communications is poor but getting better and actually driving towards what it was like when plant first opened.

    Nissan provides for me and my household and has hood benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Only 3 pto days a years and there is a lot of mandatory overtime. I also have worked for the company for over 4 years and there is still no option for me to switch to a day shift. This leaves no opportunity for any work life balance.

    I worked at Nissan North America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good to start but raises are very low.

    Cons

    Discriminatory against disabled, diversity very one sided in some areas. A lot of hiring from the outside rather than within at Irving Location. Very little chance for advancement if you start at the bottom in CS, Lease, or Processing. Collections seems to be the only area where there is room for advancement. If you file FMLA you can forget about any advancement to other areas of company unless you are in management.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and review the managers, supervisors, and seniors that you have. Way too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    - The HR team is a joke. One of the most inept teams I've encountered in a "professional" environment
    - The majority of long-term employees have maxed out in salary and benefits but contribute almost nothing
    - Toxic and inappropriate middle management
    - Prejudicial rhetoric was normal and seemed to be accepted

    Overworked, Underpaid, schedule is not flexible, favoritism, work material substandard, system does not meet needs. People in leadership positions that need to be re-evaluated.

    Spend some time on the floor with the people that are making the company money. Acknowledge the people that are going above and beyond the standards that are set up for us. Stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    One of the faster growing car manufacturer's in the world. Great company to work for!!! A lot of leading technology that no other manufacturers are doing.

    Cons

    Set unrealistic goals fpr sales staff so that you can't reach bonuses!!!

    Advice to Management

    Advertise all vehicles not just one specific vehicle!!! Advertise locally not just a national level!!! I know alot of that had to do with individual dealerships but at least offer Co-op money to assist dealerships in advertising and marketing your product!!!

    I have been working at Nissan North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive for this area, car lease benefits are great, and onsite workout facilities are convenient, for the most part good people.

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt hiring selections are suspect, many are not strategic, rule by fear instead and making throughly thought out smart decisions. More in HR involvement needed to ensure a level playing field. HR mostly absent in day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Have a broader selection process for hiring mgmt. Great contributors don't always make good managers. Those are two different skill sets. More HR involvement needed in hiring process, largely left up to the business which causes many connection hires and instead a full search for the best candidate regardless of relationship to the hiring manager.
