    Former Employee - Executive Engineer in Plzeň (Czech Republic)
    Former Employee - Executive Engineer in Plzeň (Czech Republic)

    I worked at Panasonic full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - willing to employ fresh graduated without experience, I could start from very zero
    - giving oportunities to choose your professional way within given limits
    - after years of hard working competitive salary
    - exciting job in field of consumer electronics, possibility to gain a lot of experience
    - very social, a lot of personal contacts along the way of product from ideas to the market

    Cons

    - low salary at start point (but maybe pro - no goldminers applying for this job)
    - parallel management structure Japanese/local
    - general strong mistrust from Japanese side
    - no strategic planning, even midterm (or not shared with local management)
    - invisible project management, fishy definition of roles (today you are a manager, leader, key member,... to be motivated, tomorrow only engineer who shall only follow orders, shut up and work - and when project bumps you are again a manager responsible for the failure)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - trust your employees if you mean your business seriously
    - if you do not mean it seriously, display it clearly at your employees - do not let them sacrifice for something worthless

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Panasonic full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great brand & product. Non management employees very committed to the company. Had a history of looking out for long terms employees.

    Cons

    Company not run as well as you would think, very reactive not proactive resulting in poor planning. Too many changes with no one really knowing what is going on.
