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

    Pros

    Good amount of learning, its a growing company especially with new launches, the company seems to heading to further growth.

    Cons

    Lacks vision, management is short sighted, don't seem to be looking at the big picture. Too much process driven sometimes defying logic. Work life balance is completely missing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee makes a happy company and leads to delightful customers. Ensuring employees are happy, their families are happy and have a good work life balance. Aim for your employees waking up on a Monday morning and looking forward to go to office.

    Former Employee - Placement Engineer in Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)

    I worked at Nissan as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    If you get in the right team, it's really rewarding - you can learn a lot from some very intelligent, experienced engineers. Development of practical skills is also emphasised which is something I enjoyed.

    Cons

    Often quite fractious relations between different teams, and between the engineering and production staff. Unrealistic SM targets also an issue - being compared to a brand new factory is not something you want to hear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication between engineering teams needs to be improved. Comparing a brand new factory to one that is being constantly updated is not helpful.

    Pros

    A great learning environment, with great opportunity for who ever wants to work hard.

    Cons

    Not for the person who is not willing to put everything into this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be preferable to any employee working the sales floor to never have to work a 9am to 9pm shift when there is a family to get to.

    I have been working at Nissan

    Pros

    It is a great way to make a living and get to meet new people all the time. The money can be great if you are willing to work for it. It is a fun and interesting way to make a living if you enjoy talking with strangers and getting to know them.

    Cons

    The hours will suck, and the customers do not always care if it is not a good time for you. So you wind up eating some crap from them unless you want to give up part of your commission and have someone else help them if you are off. Sometimes the people you work with are not the best but that is everywhere.
