    I worked at Nissan (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Amazing company culture (global company, diverse, got to work with co-workers from all over the world e.g. France, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Canada)
    - Very nice work environment
    - Co-workers are very professional, well-educated and productive
    - Interesting side-projects: V-Up programs/ Hoshin Kanri
    - A variety of Business Synergy teams (e.g. for women, veterans, multicultural, lgbtq etc.)

    Cons

    - rift between full-time vs. contractors (may bring you on as contractors first for a while before converting to full-time)
    - hierarchies- it's a huge corporation

    Advice to Management

    Amazing. The CEO would fly over to the North Americas HQ and speak to us/ other VPs would give talks/communicate with us/ department heads would give department meetings to align visions/goals. Senior management give 1-to-1 talks and take time to meet you for your career development goals.
