    Pros

    Constantly changing for those who like new challenges. Get to drive the product.

    Cons

    Volatility in the market/industry results in lack of job security and makes long-term planning difficult with short-term urgent matters constantly arising. Lack of labour resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better long-term planning with more resources, including labour.

    I have been working at Nissan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    generous benefits, company likes to promote within, annual boom of growth opportunities, excellent company mission statement and growth plans

    Cons

    far too frugal, out-of-touch leadership, salaries are ADMITTEDLY the worst in the industry, far too often, the company doesn't follow the excellent mission statement and growth plan they have in order, far too much emphasis on attendance and too little emphasis on quality and performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the front line employees rather than creating rules that hinder production and produce a negative morale. attendance policy needs to be thrown out and revisited.

    I worked at Nissan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nissan is flexable and dynamic and the ability to react in a truly changing environment by rotating and facilitating large volumes of work.

    Cons

    It is tough to strive for a worklife balance in this type of environment with a constant change to practice every two to three months.
