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 Management

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 Management

    None, they cannot be helped.

    Pros

    Great place to learn, to develop a good professional career, office culture is excellent, corporate culture is good, since it is a big company you get to collaborate with a lot of people from different parts of the world which helps you to develop and increase your knowledge, and high job security.

    Cons

    Compensations in Mexico are very low compared to other similar companies in the area, salary raises are very limited and HR department is very limited too.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better way to compensate employees, and improve HR practices with employees.
