I have been working at Advics North America full-time (More than 5 years)
Good pay, good benefits, not too much traffic around. Easy and slow work environment.
Boring. No penalty on making mistakes - both big and small. No career opportunities because people in management are not going anywhere. High turnover in staff level and young managers.
Advice to Management
Senior management is the only group who are benefiting from the company. No real responsibility due to all decisions made by its parent company in Japan, still act as the big bosses. Young managers and ambitious staff keep leaving due to no career development opportunities, which leaves people with no other choice to have more transitions than necessary.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Advics North America (Plymouth, MI) in April 2014.
I had two interviews, both of them with the whole management team and HR in the same room. The second interview was useless because we went through exactly the same questions as before. Very simple and natural conversation, all of them were very friendly. We basically went through my resume while I explained my responsibilities in each of the jobs listed. Got a few questions about my engineering knowledge or statements in my resume, but nothing too specific or complicated. There wasn't any type of technical test or exam to validate my knowledge, but I did not lie about my capabilities either. In conclusion, an easy interview, I would say, but this is because the interviewers made a great job at establishing a relaxing and casual atmosphere. I was no nervous at all!

I did not negotiate salary and benefits directly, an external recruiter did it for me and got excellent results.
