A former employee said this on Indeed "People in the United States are getting laid off in droves and everything is moving to plants in Monterrey, Mexico with the most incompetent, dishonest management you have ever witnessed. They frequently mislead and outright lie to customers, and this is both managers in the US and in Mexico. The CEO and executive vice president are the biggest problems, only concerned with their bottom line and their salary and bonuses. People get laid off because the executive VP just doesn't like them. This is absolutely the worst place you would ever work for in your career and the worst "executive management staff" ever assembled in automotive or electronics industry. Steer very clear of Methode!!".

Steer very clear of this organization!!!Hard to think of one.Long hours, horrible executive management, revolving door of people quitting"
CNC Turret Punch Press Operator and Programmer (Former Employee) says"Management and supervisors are horrible. No education nor the proper requirements to work in the u.s.a. Dirty and not safe to work in. Horrible pay with poor raisesGood insuranceShort breaks"
Lab Technician (Former Employee) says"Management uses the term "lead by example" but doesn't know the meaning of the phrase. They love to micro manage and while the all the other workers are working overtime (including weekends) to get caught up on projects, they are in at 7:30 and out by 5 and you'll never catch them coming in on weekends. They won't stand up to corporate to implement better policies it's always "just do it because corporate says so". It's always paperwork before projects; they are more concerned with tracking hours in a time tracker than they are with accomplishing tasks. They harp about following procedures and then come back with a task and expect it done quickly and with orders that go against procedure. Much of the equipment that is used there is older but doesn't get proper maintenance and some of the machines get used around the clock. Many of the computers and computer systems are in desperate need of an upgrade because they are slow and the programs are designed for outdated projects.Overall the place is pretty clean. The work isn't difficult or fast-paced.Poorly managed, desperately need new equipment and software. Policies need revised."
Manager (Former Employee) says"Management not connected with employees. understaffed, overworked teams. Product development needs to be expanded to improve product at time of launch.Teammembers will work very hardNot much of a work / life balance"
Telecom Tech (Former Employee) says"Unpredictable hours and lack of loyalty from the management. The hiring process is like a revolving door. Wages are below average and benefits are not great, but if you have a strong technical background and manage to break into the inner circle you may experience success.You will get regular paychecks if they have enough work to keep you aroundIf you are not upper managment you can expect, no breaks, 18 hour days and abusive work conditions. Frequent layoffs"
Product Engineer (Former Employee) says"Company will not invest in developing products. They will buy products(patents) or processes from other companies and manufacture them, but if they later discover a product requires a significant investment of time and/or money they will abandon it and fire you with no notice what so ever, and no opportunity to transfer to another program or work site. Terrible/non-existent communication from corporate management regarding program direction and career advancement opportunities. Corporate management was amateurish, and in point of fact, dishonest. They lacked the vision to see the "big picture" or long term potential of a program. They also failed to recognize the intellectual value and ability of their subordinates who in most cases are superior to those in management. Co-workers were great.Challenging workPoor communication from management, and no job security"
confidential (Current Employee) says"The boulder subsidiary was doing some cool work. However, a new, young president is now in place... Flushing everything he can down the tubes, including anyone that has anything to say other than 'yes, sir!'parent company has pretty decent benefitslocal management, parent company too far away to realize problems"
Manager (Current Employee) says"Management is horrible, they blam everyone else when they are the ones that dont know what there doing.Never fix real problems just keep blaming people nonePoor management"
Project Engineer (Former Employee) says"Communication is poor to non-existent. The company is very disorganized and the procedures that exist are inadequate and not followed. Micro management is prevalent. There are some good people there but as in most companies today they are overworked and under appreciated.Provides an incomePoor communication, disorganization, micro management"
confidential (Former Employee) says"One of the worst companies I have ever worked for. I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. The management has no idea what they're doing. Their processes are stuck in the dark ages. The culture is that of lying, cheating and stealing. If you can't fit into this culture, you won't be there long. Honesty is a handicap with this company.everything"
Electrical engineer (Current Employee) says"Us citizens - Avoid this company. Your job will be short lived until they find a visa holder from India or Middle east. The Southfield Office of Methode Electronics is now controlled by folks from Middle east and India, and they are not only importing visa folks but also their work culture which will be in federal investigation soon. Company is currently involved in a major immigration fraud related to B1 and L1 Visa. On a monthly basis folks from India office arrive at Southfield and Chicago facility of Methode Automotive in B1 Visa and these folks been send to customer/supplier for product testing/development.NoneImmigration Fraud"
production (Former Employee) says"this company did not give alot of reguard to there employees. or the community."
Production Engineer (Former Employee) says"Maintenance activities and assisting the production department. Gained experience of working in a tool-shop alongside very experienced toolmakers. Management approachable but could sometimes come across as being somewhat aloof. Good working relationship with fellow co-workers. Hardest part of this job was having to deal with simultaneous machinery breakdowns. Helping the production department to achieve customers orders on time.Good working relationship with co-workers.There could be too heavy a workload sometimes. Poor remuneration."
Process Engineer (Former Employee) says"Starts 8.00am-5.30pm Need to move fast and adapt. Tough no nonsense. Supportive co-workers Daily production targets. Solve production issues successfully.Successful completion of difficult and tough production problems.Long hours."
Production Operative (Former Employee) says"Not the greatest job , always wondering when not if they were folding eventually they did even though we were told everything was going fine Management always a bit devious everyone was on different pay rates for doing the same job ,which led to a bit of frictioninteresting workwaiting for it to shut"
POWER COATING & MARKING SPECIALIST (Former Employee) says"Mothodes Electronics is an excited company to work for and alot to learn. But their pay is low and management is not that good. I personally got many responsabilities which were not even part of my job and never got a raise.Different things to learn n overtimeLow pay, poor management"
almacenista (Former Employee) says"Empresa de medio nivel,, no hay crecimiento.......TransporteHorario"
Tech (Former Employee) says"Constant changes, "just because I said so". No job security. A typical day is complete chaos. Good production workers but they are under constant threat of losing their job to Mexico or Egypt, or just to scare everyone into silence. No production worker or tech ever got a raise in the two years I was there. Upper Management treats employees like children. Lines on the floor where you can walk, taped off areas for all desks, shelves, materials, even waste-baskets under desks. Everything is almost military-grade uniform (except a dirty workplace and restrooms) and poor air-conditioning in the work areas. (Management area very clean and cool, well lit, etc.) Lower level managers are more reasonable, but can only do so much with constant interference from "above". All for 30-minute lunches, low pay and no raises. Constant pressure!! Beware!!Free coffeeupper management constantly hawking employees"
Inventory Control Officer (Former Employee) says"Workers are very fun to be with. Management puts a top priority on people advancement through trainings and seminars. Some processes needs to be enhanced or modified to cope up with the changing times.Free lunch, shuttleLittle work life balance"
electronic technician (Former Employee) says"I liked working there, but management lies too much. They only care for themselves and don't care for the little guy that does all the work. They will sacrifice the guy that makes 9/hr, but keep a manager that does nothing making 100k.the employees are good peopleno pay raises, bad managers"
Emil Karapetian says"Fraud! Fraud! Fraud! They took 13.000 Euro for something that costs 3000 Euro. We had 2 friends after we have used their service. One of them payed 30.000 Euro for something that costs 12.000 Euro. Do not use them. Call the medical hospital directly instead of using these guys! It is Arsen Babayan that is the bad guy!!"
