    I have been working at Recaro

    Pros

    Since the company has been acquired by JCI, there are more possible opportunities for career movement available through JCI as a whole, but not within Recaro. The office and attached plant are in nice condition and the seating products are unique.

    Cons

    The company is owned by JCI, but Recaro still feeds up through Recaro Germany. There is a lot more red tape and additional unnecessary tasks to get anything done. Everything goes through Germany and Bratislava. The salaries are not very competitive. The health care benefits are worse now that JCI has taking over. There's no room for growth inside of Recaro itself. Upper management seems to not share with the... employees as a whole. Favoritism is blatant.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and open with your employees. It seems like every project or possible opportunity is a "secret", yet everyone finds out about it anyway. Treat all employees equally and fairly.

    I worked at Recaro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Hourly staff that works very hard.

    Cons

    Very poor upper management that treats staff like basic numbers. No direction or help just a get it done attitude, but will not provide you with the training and tools to complete the job. Human Resources is a joke she should be called inhuman resources. There is no reason to work hard because you will be treated the same if you put in the bare minimum. I do not recommend working here unless you want to be under... paid, over worked and treated like you are a robot.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all upper management with a team that know how to build quality product and not just run high numbers because it is all you know. Stop chopping staff to save money, instead manage inventory better. Start building Recaro seats again instead of low end seats with an expensive name.

    I have been working at Recaro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Salary, hands on experience, somewhat good benefits

    Cons

    No chance to grow, management is absolutely prejudice, upper management has no clue what the lower management is doing behind their backs...

    Advice to Management
