I worked at Takata full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Free parking.
Free but really bad coffee.
Free cheap tea.

Cons

All of the relatives of the upper management work for the company.
Upper management would rather spend lots of money on unreliable printers than on the employees.
Upper management would rather spend lots of money on renovating the main conference room over and over again than giving pay raises and bonuses to deserving employees.
Upper management would rather hire cheap labor then spend lots of money on travels to fix quality issues.
Upper management loves to spend lots of money on boondoggle trips.
The FBI raided the office one time.
There is little to no R&D/core. Most of the engineers in Core left.
Only dummies work here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. The management can't be rescued.

    Pros

    There is free food in the break room sometimes.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch.
    Pay is low. The company cannot compete.
    The good engineers leave the company quickly. Farewell emails are constant. Every week, there is at least one (or two) engineer who leaves.
    Only the junky ones stay. The caliber of the engineers is very low overall.
    Even the interns and co-ops do not want to work here. Almost all do not return. They make the wage of a Wal-Mart employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees by paying them at least at the average industry level so you can reap dividends later. Cut the bureaucracy and reduce the amount of paperwork/grunt work for your engineers. Don't ignore the low morale and job dissatisfaction of your employees. Focus on innovation, technology, actual design work. Else, just a matter of time that you will go under.
