I worked at Takata

Pros

They used to have unlimited tuition reimbursement, they no longer do. So really, there are no good reasons to work there!

Cons

Company information is rarely shared.
Raises are low, if at all, even upon receipt of an above average performance review.
Management is incapable of providing the necessary guidance for the company to succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, they cannot be helped.

    I worked at Takata as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work envirement, company values

    Cons

    The plant growth is very small in Takata-Petri in Morocco, which is might not be the best place for training or first job exprience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morocco is a very strategic country to grow the organization( people, envirement, salary..). If you can establish new plant or expand it in Morocco, it will be a win-win case for both of Takata organization and Moroccan capable employees

    I have been working at Takata full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'll say that it has definitely had its fun moments while working here.

    The re-instated 401K match is nice.

    Raises are usually yearly as long as you know the people to push to get it.

    Cons

    The yearly compensation that is supposed to increase to keep up with inflation is a joke. It is usually enough to purchase an extra 6 pack each month in a hope of drowning away the thoughts of how under paid and underappreciated you are.

    The management structure and communication is a sick and sad joke all in its own. You say your restructuring all you want but if all you’re doing is putting makeup on the pig...guess what...it's still a pig. The amount of time that it takes anyone to make any real decisions in management will one day be the down fall of this company.

    You want training? Don't look here! Empty promises for training have become the norm for what I have heard.

    There were positions where skilled IT techs and engineers were reduced in labor size during the recession but since everything has come back and their busier than they were before. Sadly there are still only a hand full of people to do these positions and they refuse to add anymore into them. And they wonder why a person would leave after two months of doing the job of what should have been pushed out to two or three people.

    Little has changed since the rest of the reviews of Takata...Hopefully one day they will learn...but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the curtain that you keep in place. It's like being in a plane where the 1st class passengers shut the curtain after everyone walks by them into 3rd class. After that you won't see them for the rest of the flight.

    You’re a business and should make decisions a little faster than the speed of snail you’re doing right now.
