    Worked very hard from 7-6pm and every Saturday 7-4pm

    Service Representative (Former Employee) Memphis, TN (US)

    It has gone terribly down hill... Quality and caring about employees are no longer the concern.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Smyrna, TN (US)

    ProsLeased vehicles. That's it at this point.

    ConsThe best days as a place employees enjoy and are proud to work at are long gone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's all about saving a dime at the expense of quality and the employees. Unqualified people are promoted through the "good ol boy network." I used to love working here about 10-15 years ago. Management cared about employees then and actual knew what they were doing. The new style of management here are arrogant and pompous and unqualified.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Engineer, develop and test vehicle components

    Engineer (Current Employee) Detroit, MI (US)

    ProsLocation is in a good area of greater Detroit area. Non union manufacturing

    ConsNo carrer opportunities. One engineer is asked to do the job of 2-3 people. Long working hours. Defined pension plan was cancelled and bonuses reduced. Big disconnect between what the upper managment wants and what the company can deliver.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate career opportunities for everybody in the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience at Nissan has been overall rewarding. I have learned much about the manufacturing industry in my position.

    Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) Smyrna, TN (US)

    ProsGreat benefits and time off are offered, as well as insurance (health, dental, vision), life insurance, 401k, etc. Work environment relatively clean and friendly.

    ConsPromotion selection could use some work. I am by nature a fast grower/learner, and have felt stagnant in my job for quite some time. Opportunities seem to be given to others in a loose "good-ol-boy" system to people who are sorely underqualified for their positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive people a chance to prove themselves. Subject lower level management and line leads frequent anonymous employee surveys.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Rejection for post of data analysis

    Data Analyst (Former Employee) Paris (France)

    ProsThe HR kept me waiting for 25 days to answer that due to internal restructuring the internship has been cancelled

    ConsDid not even get an interview

    Advice to Senior ManagementI did not even apply for the jib my CV was in your data base and they approached me for it
