    No clarity!

    Special Projects (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    I worked at Yamaha America


    Pros: The objectives of the NY office were clear, and the team there the right mix of people to actually make it happen.… Cons: The charter of the NY office was clear to the NY office but not to ANY OTHER subsidiary within this very large global company.… Advice to Senior Management: Clarify the role of the subsidiary and empower the people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
