    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.

    Pros

    You get very good benefits. It is an international work environment with more than 20 nationalities. Nice and friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    It is in "Paris" but actually the offices are quite far from the city center. May take long until you get a promotion. Working with the headquarters is Japan is very challenging

  6.  

    Well organised with positive 'can do' culture; pressure to perform but not much recognition.

    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Newcastle, England
    Current Employee - Engineer in Newcastle, England

    I have been working at Nissan

    Pros

    Positive goal achievement culture, well organised, reasonable training opportunities - e.g. 80% sponsorship for higher education.

    Cons

    Limited career opportunities. Long working hours expected - seen as the 'norm' by management, therefore little appreciation shown. Pressure to perform, but little difference in reward between good performance and average performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On a company level senior management are doing a fair job maintaining business competitiveness. On an individual level performance and reward (recognition/remuneration/career prospects) are poorly linked.

    Current Employee - Senior Processor in Irving, TX (US)

    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.
