    Pros

    Great work life balance through 9/80 program. Interesting development programs at major OEMs. An impressive tenure track if you're not interested in going into management. Good pay scales and vacation policy.

    Progressive, forward thinking management team.

    Cons

    Medical insurance deductibles are high. Still a few tyrannical managers hanging around that just drive people away. I'm a little concerned about recent acquisitions

    Pros

    Good Benefits, and Medical.

    Cons

    IPT leader that came from Cedar Rapids changes your reviews from what your manager gives you. She shows favoritism and promotes her friends. She goes to Las Vegas with her employees and also goes to bars and drinks with her employees. She doesn't know how to draw the line from being a true leader. Low Morale ever since she came to Melbourne.

    Advice to Management

    IPT leaders or Managers should not be allowed to go out drinking and partying with their employees, and getting drunk on the Christmas party to where they carry out one of her buddy friends.

    Pros

    Its great for job security, 40 hours a week and benefits. They offer tuition reimbursement and very much great atmosphere.
