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.

    I have been working at Yaskawa Electric America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great management. great product. Middle Management to Executive level "listens" to all of their employees, so if you are unsatisfied, then that is your fault because you need to let people know your concerns, and point out why you're an asset!

    Cons

    As a Japanese subsidiary, changes (product development, innovations) tend to be on the slow/methodical/conservative side. This however, is also a benefit and reason why the quality is unmatched.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!
