    Pros

    I like the people I worked with. Fairly good work/ personal life balance.

    Cons

    Company always tries to keep up with its competitor...Japanese management refuses to invest in high technology or research & development.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to be offered an increase without asking for it... that is why a lot of good people choose to leave. Just because people are smart doesn't mean that they know how to handle people (be managers).

  3. Satisfying work/life balance with challenging projects to work on but still has a lot of improving to do w.r.t. culture.

    Pros

    Decent company to work for. Good folks around the plant floor. Will work with you if you know how to deal with them. Great benefit package. One of the best around Illinois.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are limited. General consensus is that people are under-paid for their efforts and performance. No raises, No bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    The benefits package is outstanding. It is difficult to match even with Fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Foreign management cannot communicate with local staff. Hard to move ahead when the boss can't understand what you're talking about. Concern about the ethics of upper Japanese management - this is the U.S., not Japan, but they don't seem to get that where people and the law are concerned. HR tells them it's against the law? Their answer? "Who cares, do it anyway."

    Advice to Management

    Learn English!!! Let your American President act like a President and the lead the organization rather than having them act as a Senior Sales Manager. Pete's trying but doesn't have the experience or support to do a good job.
