Pros

On-site gym and child care center.

Cons

We are all asked to produce more with less resources. Quality of work suffers when quantity is demanded. Customer service related departments have an extensive training course before the employees begin their work. Other more technical areas have no training course and the staff are expected to train each other with minimal managerial input.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management promotions don't work when the new manager lacks knowledge or experience in the new department. Mentor your subordinates.

    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.

    Pros

    Chez Nissan Europe, travailler dans l'équipe de communications et marketing :

    - Grande entreprise, apparaît bien sur le CV

    - Beaucoup de médias / budgets de publicité afin que vous fassiez quelques coups cools et fous

    - Opportunité pour voyager

    - Bon

    In Nissan Europe, working in Marketing Communications team:
    - Big company, looks good on CV
    - Lots of media/advertising budget so you get to do some crazy cool stunts
    - Opportunity for travel
    - Good salary
    - If you are a serial office politician this is the place for you
    - Some very good HUMAN work colleagues

    Cons

    Chez Nissan Europe, travailler dans l'équipe de communications et marketing :

    - Tons de la politique de bureau, des ragots et de la simple méchanceté

    - Les personnes alternent tant leurs postes, que beaucoup de gens n'ont aucune idée de ce qu'ils font

    - Dans les communications et marketing, les gens n'ont jamais entendu les bases tel que les KPI et objectifs

    - Hiérarchie paralysante : tout ce que vous faites a besoin d'être approuvé par une direction supérieure (parfois même le PDG)

    - Des personnes aléatoires obtiennent des promotions & augmentations, habituellement les collègues de bureau et ceux qui sont proches de la direction

    - De folles heures de travail : parfois des réunions à 9 heures du soir ! La direction se plaint si vous voulez partir et continuer votre vie. Si vous avez des enfants, ces réunions vont seulement continuer sans vous

    In Nissan Europe, working in Marketing Communications team:
    - Tons of office politics, gossip and just plain nastiness
    - People rotate their positions a lot, so many people have NO idea of what they are doing
    - In Marketing Communications, people never heard of the basics such as KPIs and objectives
    - Crippling hierarchy: everything you do needs to be approved by senior management (sometimes even the CEO)
    - Random people get promotions & raises, usually the office buddies and those cozy with management
    - Crazy working hours: sometimes meetings at 9 PM! Management complains if you want to leave and get on with your life. If you have kids these meetings will just go on without you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) S'il vous plaît rendez-vous compte que les gens ont une vie en dehors du travail. 2) S'il vous plaît jugez vos collègues par leur TRAVAIL et non par les commérages / commentaires d'autres personnes

    1) Please realize people have lives outside work. 2) Please judge your colleagues by their WORK and not by gossip/comments from other people
