From the Trenches

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Armada, MI

I have been working at Takata

Pros-they provide a paycheck that covers the mortgage
-company match on 401k
-somewhat loose work environment

Cons-Lack of sound technical direction and vision
-Biased treatment of employees
-No where to go (career wise)
-Job security is questionable... would not be surprised if the place closed due to lack of output

Advice to Senior ManagementHire leaders who have the knowledge, experience and vision to provide you with technically competent support and guidance, along with the confidence and guts to tell you like it is and give it to you straight.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
