      Pros

      Good people to work with. Invested a lot in their facilities. Good opportunity to move around, try new jobs Pay and benefits were good

      Cons

      Its a more centralized company, so a lot of decision making comes from the top. A lot of business is still with GM, so as GM goes so does AAM.

      Ok place to work if short term

      Pros

      Good benefits, good salary, great profit sharing

      Cons

      If you are looking at staying long-term, this may not be the company for you. There have been layoffs every year for the past 4 years. No opportunities for advancement if you are not in the click, no matter how qualified you are. There is a lot of bureaucracy and takes months to accomplish simple tasks (i.e. order spare parts, receipt equipment/tooling, etc.). Seems like every time there is a failure in the system, everything would get pushed on the manufacturing engineers.

      Pros

      Great co-workers, great work-life balance. You feel appreciated and taken care of by the company. Stability and regular feedback as well as the chance to participate

      Cons

      The company cuts pay during a pandemic and still expects you to provide the same level of support. Work over 40 hours a week and still be on call 24/7. The company does not foster the development (no training) of their employees.

      Pros

      Relatively low politics at work. People on the floor are good to work with.

      Cons

      Cost cutting focuses on savings from penny components, finance is out of touch with what is actually happening on the floor and with purchasing. non standard architectures for savings but not enough talent to support all the different softwares and hardware with the model.
