I worked at Yaskawa Electric America full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent products, systems, and processes in place - company has a solid foundation for success. There are great people to work with and you'll find many dedicated professionals here. Very nice corporate office with easy access to expressway - many restaurants nearby. Overall - a great place to work.

Cons

Many long-tenured employees and managers - this tends to limit access to 'fresh ideas'. Management team is a 'boys club', if you're not in, then promotions are slow to come.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up with current trends and continue to listen to your employees. As a former employee, I found Yaskawa to be the best company I've ever worked for.

    Pros

    Good benefits, fair pay , clean environment most of the people are very pleasant.

    Cons

    Managers do not care about workers just the amount of product shipped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look and listen to what the workforce is saying . Be more friendly to all employees and let them know they are appreciated,this will boost moral. Put aside the close friendship of upper managers and listen to what the workforce has to say about there leadership skills or lack of. There are many unhappy workers at Oak Creek which is very unfortunate.

    I have been working at Yaskawa Electric America

    Pros

    Yaskawa's reputation in Industrial Automation has been built on the quality of its products and support. The demands of the job are high and Engineers are proud of the work they do.
    In exchange for high demands, Yaskawa makes an effort to take care of its Empolyees. As an employee, I have always been able to count on having clear objectives and requirements for moving forward in my career.

    Cons

    There is no coasting at Yaskawa; expect long hours. Need to communicate with parent corporation and support sibling corporations increases the hours an Engineer is expected to be available and blurs the lines between personal time and company time.
