I worked at American Suzuki Motor

Pros

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

Cons

Japanese 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 ManagementAdvice

If 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.

    I have been working at American Suzuki Motor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good (local, U.S.) people to work with that, for the most part, work hard. Mostly for below-average pay...why, I don't know.

    Cons

    Numerous...the executives do NOT want to hear any input from the natives and this place is absolutely run by the executives at the mother ship in Japan. Low pay, average to below benefits, very little upward movement future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's no use...the company is run by an ancient dictator in Japan. No one cares or will listen.
