    Pros

    This is a fairly stable benefits with a decent starting wage and decent benefits. It is a large company that can move its workforce around somewhat to balance out work loads

    Cons

    Once you top out in salary, it stagnates terribly. They are not keeping up with area wages. Much of newer salaried employees leaving for better paying jobs. Benefits decreasing yearly

    Advice to Management

    Work on retaining talent. Too much turnover of salaried positions costing too much in retraining and continuity

    Pros

    Possibility to involve in the developments of Japanese big vehicles such as ship, aircraft, train and so on. The company is one of the big and traditional companies in Japan.

    Cons

    The scale of business is a little bit small. Most of their investment is for design technology, not for production one.

    Advice to Management

    More valuable investment for competitiveness in both the company own and human resources.
