    Employees can rotate between different departments easily. Change of job every 2 to 3 years

    Cons

    Flexibility is also given by the work on Excel more than real database management. It means a lot of work duplication
    Demanding company without adequate compensation

    Not very good

    I have been working at Nissan as a contractor

    Pros

    I am a temp that have been there a year. And the only pro I seeis that I have a job.

    Cons

    The pay is not good compared to the work they are asking for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are asking for the same quality of work from your temps as the permanent employees. Then your pay and benefits should be closer to Nissan employees. And I think you should look at the fact that you are interviewing temp for positions they are already doing. Which seems to be unfair. Most companies will hire you after three mos. But Nissan have temps there for 2years that are still not permanent.

    I worked at Nissan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Loyal to employees create long tenures for employees. Many employees have worked with Nissan for more than 20 years. Even in times of financial recession the company worked hard to avoid layoffs for its employees.

    Cons

    Though you may have the opportunity to stay with the company for a long time opportunity for advancement may be slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nissan is a great place to work but would benefit from developing effective ways to develop and retain talent

    Pros

    I learned a lot work at nissan, great company to work for. The GM and GSM were great to work for.

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes you spend hours with a customer and they don't get anything. Customers would either want to buy and not be able to buy or waste your time.
