    I worked at Porsche Cars North America

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The location has very little traffic. The company will sponser several employee events and gives gifts often.

    Cons

    About 90% of the financial services company are contractors. There is very little opportunity for contractors to become full time, even after several (4-5) years. Senior management are not reprimanded for their behavior and often treat employees as if they are just "filling in". The turn over is extremely high. There is a batch of 7-10 new hires every quarter. The general ideology is fire one, hire three or if two quit, hire five for the same role in hopes that one or two will stay. Many of those in management positions do not want their employees to grow. They only want the assigned tasks done and that's all. It's very easy to get "stuck" at this company and stay because of the popularity of the brand but the opportunity here is not as great as other companies. Not to mention the culture is one that belittles their employees and does not give appreciation or recognition.
