    Pros

    Work all the overtime your heart desires. Union environment pay is decent for area. Employees are friendly and welcome to new hires as long as you do your part and work.

    Cons

    Upper management. Overloaded employees. Lack of listening. If you don't have a life away from work then this place is perfect for you. Will never have time to do anything other than work.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your supervisors to make decisions, listen to them, and take there advice they deal with the floor something you are wrongfully out of touch with. The new HR regime is trying to blow butterflies and rainbows out of every where they can, but have failed to make the environment anymore inviting to workers or lower and middle managers. Put in bonus programs so the people that do actually work there butt off get rewarded instead of washed into the pack.

    Pros

    Great benefits, small company feel, good pay

    Cons

    Policies are stuck in 1990, slow moving bureaucracy for the size company, long hours the norm, no upward mobility, no structured career path

    Advice to Management

    New blood. Most of the management has been there for 15-20 years and want to do everything the way it has always been done. Rock the boat change things up.

    Pros

    Friendly people. Nicely furnished. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Some inept co-workers performing below expectations still keep their jobs because Managers are too afraid to confront them. Lack of personal recognition. HR? -Don't even know who they are . Not a female-friendly company and they pay females less for same positions held by men. Lack of investment in technology.

    Pros

    The people want to do the right things to make the company great. The atmosphere changed over time and it became more political.

    Cons

    Senior leadership prevented the company from growing. They forced many good people out of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that actually do the work. Take a bottom up approach instead of top down.

    I have been working at Daikin North America as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    From what I was told, the benfits are amazing, especially health

    Cons

    Daikin's business procedures could use some fine tuning

    Advice to Management

    Don't REQUIRE 3 outstanding references from past employers. Take into account a person's hard work and efforts while working at Daikin as a temp
