I worked at Nissan

Pros

Great learning experience. Everyone is very helpful and a lot of work is required, which in turn makes a great learning experience for any new engineers that are beginning their career in the automotive industry and any other industry.

Cons

One of benefits of working a lot is obtaining a lot of informaiton and experience, but at the same time, an engineer will be working a lot of hours to complete assignments. In turn, an engineer will have to sacrifice some of his/her personal time for work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is great direction and a great business structure. The open door/flat business heirarchy is beneficial in implementing changes. Be more aware of hours being worked by engineers to complete projects/jobs because there are a lot of hours being worked because some managers require them.

    Former Employee - Placement Engineer in Sunderland, North East England, England

    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.
