Featured Review

Former Employee - Human Resources Assistant

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.

Advice to Management

This organization (less than 100 employees) has had 4 presidents in the last 5 years. No clear direction, no planning, IAV Germany does not care. (All they care about is using IAV Inc for business... development and selling services for German employees). Annual target is to achieve 3% profit by the end of the year. If they are not going to meet this goal (since 2014) there will be layoffs, (normally the newer employees are laid off to prevent lawsuits from employees with 6 to 18 years of tenure). Lots of OPT visas for Indian nationals, however, Green Cards are only sponsored to European employees (German, Brits, French).
