Pros

As an operator, you have plenty of opportunities for overtime. 12 days on, 2 days off. Decent benefits.

Cons

Upper management mentality that proves that they believe that they are still in Japan and not the US. Upper management, both Japanese and American, do not consider input from employees even they have a suggestion program. Currently experiencing an 60-80% turn over rate for hourly employees, and a 30-40% turn over rate of salary employees.

Advice to Management

Allow employees with decision making responsibilities to make improvements that have been suggested and proven in other environments. Use your employee's previous experiences and award them for their efforts instead of singling out and harassing them.

    Pros

    The benefits package is outstanding. It is difficult to match even with Fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Foreign management cannot communicate with local staff. Hard to move ahead when the boss can't understand what you're talking about. Concern about the ethics of upper Japanese management - this is the U.S., not Japan, but they don't seem to get that where people and the law are concerned. HR tells them it's against the law? Their answer? "Who cares, do it anyway."

    Advice to Management

    Learn English!!! Let your American President act like a President and the lead the organization rather than having them act as a Senior Sales Manager. Pete's trying but doesn't have the experience or support to do a good job.

  2. Don't plan to make a career of working at NTN

    Pros

    It's a steady paycheck and has good benefits

    Cons

    No career growth. Foreign management treats you like crap and has no understanding of your job function. Upper management (especially foreign) is completely inept and is running the company into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    stop golfing and start paying attention to the crumbling infrastructure of your business.
