    I worked at IAV Automotive Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    20 PTO days and 13 Holidays -> however, if you are laid off (BTW annual layoffs in October / November) you will lose your PTO / Holiday hours -> unpaid. If you are interested in consulting look for better options such as AVL, FEV or Roush. Org charts are irrelevant, as you can use any title and you will be working with different teams with quite different responsibilities (chaos). Employee evaluations are difficult, since some employee might have had 4 or 5 different supervisors...the result is poor evaluation results -> no/low salary increases

    Cons

    2018 HR Survey (Facts): 70% of employees rate morale as low. Average tenure goes from 2 years to 5 years depending on group/team. Reasons: lack of career planning, lack of communication/cooperation, false immigration promises (22%), no knowledge transfer from Germany to local teams. 88% of resignations are from millennials.

    I worked at IAV Automotive Engineering full-time

    Pros

    The company is very good and treats its employees very well. There are great benefits and there is also much support if you want to move across the company to different department. Management does the best that it can to support employees in their growth.

    Cons

    The company scatters its contract employees which makes iAV more of a satellite establishment.

    I have been working at IAV Automotive Engineering full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fair benefits, flexible working culture, friendly people at the work place, possibility to work onsite through IAV with companies like VW, M&M etc. IAV is part of VWAG group

    Cons

    Company does not bother about their employees at times specially the employees working onsite, companies main goal becomes to stay in business and earn the comission. No carrier plans for employees, probably you will work in same area till your last day in company even if you want a role change and growth. No training is provided or if it does you have sign a bond (depends on training program) Currently company facing serious business situation at some location inn the world Many global IAV offices has been shut down due to lack of local business, only Germany doing well because of VWAG (possibility to get a job there is hard)

    I have been working at IAV Automotive Engineering full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to try and do things the way you want to. The company encourages its employees to be creative and develop tools & methods that might be helpful. You don't have to be a part of a process, you can define how you do your work. If you need help, they will get you in contact with technical experts from Germany. It is a great place to learn.

    Cons

    Its is a developing company so pay package is not the maximum a person can get but the work culture is outstanding and the benefits package is very good. Overall I don't think there is a big con.

    I worked at IAV Automotive Engineering for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, time off, health insurance. It's a good company for entry level since you can learn a lot from colleagues, and you can get exposed to different areas (based on your luck).

    Cons

    No bonus, 401K match isn't enough, they don't go through with their promises, and there isn't enough control of budget in the US all the big decisions come from Germany.
