    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.
