    I worked at Nissan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Loyal to employees create long tenures for employees. Many employees have worked with Nissan for more than 20 years. Even in times of financial recession the company worked hard to avoid layoffs for its employees.

    Cons

    Though you may have the opportunity to stay with the company for a long time opportunity for advancement may be slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nissan is a great place to work but would benefit from developing effective ways to develop and retain talent

    Pros

    I learned a lot work at nissan, great company to work for. The GM and GSM were great to work for.

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes you spend hours with a customer and they don't get anything. Customers would either want to buy and not be able to buy or waste your time.

    Was expecting to come out with a job offer, or some idea of what to expect post-graduation, but was left hanging.

    Honestly, I really enjoyed all interactions with upper-management.
