    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BMW of North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Knowledge of Telematics and automotive infotainment system.

    Cons

    Managers and leads are the definition of micromanagers. Way too much time spent of playing mind games against employees. Everything is about job security. Too much favoritism. You have people that are never in the office who are held at a pedestal while others working hard who never get recognized. Don't expect career growth. As soon as they realize you're good at what you do, they'll try everything to keep you in... that corner. Avoid at all cost. Hence this is my last year here.
