Pros

If you are incompetent, but good at ass kissing this is the place for you. Any type of merit based performance or review is completely unknown to management at Takata. Good politicians will do well.

Cons

Management is incompetent and unethical. Completely. No exceptions. They all sport advanced degrees from mail order places like Kennedy Western University (credit for "life experience"). They willingly fabricate or change data (test results, etc.) to hide problems with airbag products.

High turnover as competent engineers leave as soon as they are able.

Senior management lacks the necessary skills to understand and make intelligent product decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Layoff for two weeks then quit for good.

    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.
