    I have been working at Recaro full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers are fantastic. We have each others’ backs. The company covers insurance premiums, which is also a con. See below.

    Cons

    No growth, stagnant pay, and low morale (due to management). Voicing an opposing opinion about literally anything gets you labeled as negative or toxic. Yearly reviews are a joke. We bet on who will get the worst score, because we all know what’s up. Because the covered premiums are considered a part of your overall compensation, it is used as the reason to avoid yearly increases. I was told that the amount paid for my family’s insurance amounts to an additional $13/hr. However, if you choose to opt out, you receive only an additional $100 a month. The 401K no longer has any employer match. Used to have wonderful supervisors, but they kept quitting. Lost a lot of good coworker because the company culture rewards those who go along to get along, and punished those who voice concerns, ask questions or don’t smile and say hello to every single person that comes within ten feet of them.

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits with no cost, Generous Vacation time per year, Availability to work from home if approved, Friendly co-workers that is a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Challenging, 100% assembly manufacturing so we depend a lot on our supplier performance in order for us to be successful. Some departments probably need to go back to basics, some of our process and procedures is what make us not as efficient as we should.

    I have been working at Recaro full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Benefits and PTO are two of the greatest things about Recaro. You receive 5 weeks worth of PTO and this company pays for your health insurance. This makes your work/life balance a lot easier to achieve. It also takes away the burden of having to calculate how much you REALLY make once you take out what you're paying for insurance. If you are very sickly or have a family, the benefits are a major win. I also like how lax and comfortable the environment is. There is very little micro- managing which is a huge plus. Last, but not least, I LOVE the company activities. The sports and picnics and overall comradery helps keep up morale at the workplace.

    Cons

    Each department has a silo mentality, almost as if they are a part of separate mini companies instead of one company. Our KPI's work in direct opposition to each other and people hardly want to compromise at the risk of jeopardizing their yearly cockpit goals. Because you have to work closely with various departments, this makes it very stressful and difficult to do minor tasks. Occasionally there is preferential treatment amongst colleagues depending on who the manager "likes" and there should be fair and just treatment amongst all.
