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

    Pros

    Paid overtime (and plenty of it).
    Good overall package (car lease scheme, sickness benefits, private health care).
    Flexible working (depending on team).
    Training and development.
    Easily accessible.

    Cons

    Basic salary lower than comparable (less stressful) jobs at local companies.
    Pension below industry standard.
    Management expect too much from staff.
    Salary progression (linked to performance) woeful - no real reason to perform.
    The staff with a "can-do" attitude are loaded with work while the work-shy manage to avoid big projects / tasks.
    Insufficient funds made available for projects.
    Ageing plant and equipment - too much asked of 20 year old + equipment.
    Excessive amounts of overtime to meet project deadlines and production schedule.
    No real sense of comradery between staff / departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the right money to attract suitable staff and hold on to your existing staff (your biggest asset!).

    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.

    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.
