HR/Management is lacking.
Technician (Current Employee) –  Homer, MIOctober 23, 2017
Extremely reactive company. Everything gets a bandaid but never really gets fixed. Not much care for you as an employee at Brembo you are just another number. Management from the floor on up has no clue what's going on unless it's in the air conditioned office. Unquestionably the worst human resources department anywhere around.
Pros
Ok pay
Cons
HR department is a joke. Management is absolutely clueless.

Lack of Communication & Leadership
Systems Division (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MIAugust 25, 2017
If you plan to grow in your career, look elsewhere. It is a very lean organization with not a lot of opportunity for growth. Leadership is very poor, so do not plan on having managers or upper level management take an interest in your career or having clear communication on what company objectives are.
Pros
Depending on manager, there is good work/life balance.
Cons
Poor leadership, No upper management engagement, no clear communication on company objectives.

It is an interesting place to work. There are a variety of jobs you can learn. Good place for people who want to learn new things quickly. Attention to detail needed.

2014 Brembo = great place to work. 2017 = Don't even bother
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIAugust 4, 2017
Basically all you need to know is they moved all of the desirable jobs to Mexico for half the pay and all that's left are the 7 day a week grunt jobs. Sad!
Pros
Caliper was a great place to work
Cons
The disc plant is where dreams come to die.

Extremely poorly ran
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIJuly 31, 2017
The people in the office sit on their butts in an air conditioned office not doing squat and get paid way too much. They don't work weekends when they force the floor to work every weekend. The supervision doesn't know how to properly do things or how to treat the workers. The turnover rate is ridiculously high because of this.
Pros
Money
Cons
Poor office and supervision

fun cool job
Assembly Technician (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAJuly 25, 2017
My duties was to assemble GT kits which was the bread and butter of Brembo. Since brembo is a Sport brake manufacture i would see many and i mean many exotic cars. i was able to preview some of the cars before it was shown to the public. my job was stressful at times since it was a requirement to meet stick quality.

Was a good place
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Homer, MIMay 8, 2017
Most of their lines from caliper are all moved to mexico. Only 3 lines left and they will be going also to mexico. No one knows when their last day will be. They keep blowing smoke up everyones butt. Operators mean nothing to them but money makers. To move up u better have ur knee pads on. Its sad but true. Management will never take your side, u will always be the blame no matter whos fault it is. U can try your luck with the foundry or disc but its all ran by the same company and management.
Pros
Pay, insurance
Cons
Management, human resource.

This place rocked!
Continuous Improvement Assistant (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIApril 27, 2017
LOVE the work environment, the culture, the pay, the benefits, everything, except the location. Nothing to do in the area. I loved working there, but to go anywhere else as good as there, I had to get a degree.
Pros
Great work culture and environment.
Cons
The location.

Pros
Great pay and fun Company outing
Cons
Revolving door of employment

Love Working For Brembo
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Homer Location, MIApril 20, 2017
Management is fair and provides us good reasoning for their decisions - keeps us informed. Despite changes in business for the Caliper plant, any affected and qualified employees in good standing were eligible for transfer to Disc or Foundry. Typical day is fast paced which allows us to feel job security and appreciated. Would recommend Brembo to friends and family - very generous in benefits & perks to working here!
Pros
Fun place to work, keeps employees engaged, benefits and compensation, lots of advancement opportunities
Cons
Remote Location

Machine Setup and Operator (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIMarch 6, 2017
Machining rotors with such tight tolerances improves your measuring and machining abilities daily. All in all though Brembo has a variety of employees that are all more than willing to assist in bettering the company as a whole.

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIFebruary 18, 2017

Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Must be a favorite of management and HR to get anywhere

They are all lairs
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Homer, MIFebruary 7, 2017
When caliper basically shut down they cared nothing about their employees. They kept lying to us saying there were no open positions, but getting on indeed everyday they sure were hiring for foundry and disc. They care nothing about their employees and will lie straight to your face. I have worked in some pretty bad places, but this one for sure took the cake. Worst company to work for.
Pros
Benifits and money
Cons
The management are liars and have no clue about anything.

forklift operator (Current Employee) –  Homer, MIJanuary 30, 2017
Rare advancement, a lot of work has been sent to Mexico thus eliminating half of the workforce in the caliper plant. New foundry gives more job opportunities.

Shift supervisor (Current Employee) –  Avenel, NJJanuary 12, 2017
Great company to work for. Benefits are great but it all depends on what kind of manager you get. Overall as a supervisor things at Brembo are good but I'm personally using it as a stepping stone.
