Poor top down management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsExcellent product line up is all vehicles available to the U. S. market

ConsJapanese management has to much control over the day-to-day operation in the U. S. Profit became the only driver to built a presence in the U. S. market. Senior Japanese management believed in expensing the company to a profit. With that approach, the company has seen its sales decline from a high of 100,000 units in 2007 to just over 32,000 units in 2009 and their sales are off 52% 2010 vs 2009 and delayed future product to the U. S. market.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to succeed in the U. S. market you must allow the U.S. management to run the U.S. operations if you plan to be successful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
