    I have been working at Keyence (less than an year)

    Pros

    Expenses paid, strong base salary, excellent technical training and support, travel (could go either way), never see your boss.

    Cons

    Never see your boss/limited feedback. Travel. Long hours. High expectations. Lack of transparency in terms of bonuses and promotions. Glad I got on management's good side because if I didn't life would be a lot harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you trust your employees with very expensive equipment, why keep things so tight lipped? Be more open about things.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by recruiter and then received a basic knowledge test that was fairly straightforward. After passing the test was prompted to complete a video interview through a online source. Was simple if prepared. Heard back a few weeks later that they had decided to move forward with other candidates.
