    I worked at Daikin North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is definitely a lot of room for growth for Daikin America. Managers provide a lot of opportunity for personal and professional growth. The product line is interesting, and the industries that Daikin serves are varied - making the work interesting and varied. Company takes training seriously,

    Cons

    A slightly less tech-savvy population made it challenging to use information technology to our best advantage. Also, Daikin uses Lotus Notes for their email client - which was a little frustrating at times. Some teams are small, so although there is long term job stability and potential, short term prospects seem less exciting. There is also a reluctance to hire people, which led to some overwork and stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in better information technology. Be more willing to hire people.

    Not great. Management does not know how to properly utilize experienced people.

    I worked at Daikin North America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially medical and 401K..

    Cons

    Micromanagement abounds. Training is the same on-line "stuff" every year. Personal growth is not really available. Management dwells on "fluff" instead of important planning, customers and projects. IT Department definitely needs an upgrade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from the old-time trends and protocol. It is a Japanese company, but you are in the USA with mainly American workers.
