    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to learn

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, good location, 401k matching, company car

    Cons

    The workload is heavy, so there is very little work, life balance. Fear based management, unrealistic and often unclear expectations, thankless. PLM performance review system is a joke. Only place I have worked where you can meet all your targets, and still get a low rating. No raises, just bonuses which get smaller every year.

    Advice to Management

    Value and support your people. They are working hard to do a great job. Get rid of PLM, and move toward something to fairly evaluate and coach employees.

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    -Most coworkers although unhappy working there were nice and professional all the time. -Nice buildings with all shops and facilities.

    Cons

    FCA has no regard for professional high achievers. Unless you have a close and personal relationship with your manager, expect to get knocked down in your performance rating and watch the lowest performers rise high year after year. Zero growth prospects offered during my last 9 years of service with the company. Engineers do 90% of clerical paperwork job and 10% “real” engineering. I tried to raise this issue... several times with the management as it affected the quality of the products over a longer term. Unfortunately the culture is so stiff that management won’t listen to or act.

    Advice to Management

    - Maintain the high achievers who work silently but contribute way more than the mere “talkers” . - Performance management systems solely accepts manager’s input to rate an employee and once entered by manager in the system does not allow employee to appeal to. This is completely wrong! The employee should have a say or a chance to appeal and explain why he/she deserves better rating.

    Pros

    The people are so kind and personal and fun. People sincerely care about each other.

    Cons

    It's a large company, so not everyone follows the nuances of processes, which makes it very difficult for people to get their job done efficiently if they rely on that person's work.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be stricter templates and stricter checks and stricter enforcement of due dates.
