    Terrible!!! Cheap management and the worst HR team!

    Pros

    Learning experience. Things are such a mess that employees have to learn how to do all the things by themselves.

    Cons

    Lack of ethics is the rule at Nissan. About the work, the system used at this company is...Excel. Tons of useless requests from management who doesnt understand the business. Ignorant management promoting people as ignorante as them, while the good employees suffer the consequences. Lot of expats at management level who have to be taught how to run the business. Talent Management is a joke - they even recommend dirty networking to get promotions or positions and openly say that employees are responsible to find new position by themselves - skills and knowledge aren't important. Key employees are leaving the company that makes things even worse!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at European headquarters - complete disaster.

    I worked at Nissan as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities and projects
    Higher than average pay
    Team activities and meals out
    Discounted Gym membership and good Nissan car discounts

    Cons

    Day starts at 7.55 and ends at 4.40 with only a 30 minute lunch
    We were working on Windows XP operating system
    Office politics make work difficult and leave unpleasant work environment
    Some in the office area take advantage of being left to complete own work without close supervision and will sit on Facebook, Daily Mirror and other websites while others work which leads to frustration in the office.
