          I worked at Detroit Diesel

          Pros

          I cannot think of many Pros working at Detroit Diesel.

          Cons

          They atmosphere is very cut throat. People in management are continually promoted no matter what. My last supervisor before I left was more concerned about where she was going to vacation next. She continually favored certain employees and let them make their own schedules - including "working from home" when actually no work was done.

          Advice to Management

          One of my past supervisors is now in charge of the Detroit Plant and it is unbelievable to me. This guy is not qualified to be in this position. He is biased against women and advances men when possible. HR is aware of this person and the way he treats women ...but they have done NOTHING.
