    Engineers do clerk work not technical

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Yonkers, NY

    Prosfree turkey for thanksgiving each year
    Not really any major advantage about the living cost of Yonkers, or NYC metro area

    Cons-engineers do a lot of clerk work, not technical
    -engineers are kept out of R&D process
    -Engineers are just administrative assistant of Japan side
    -No chance of promotion if you don't speak Japanese and work as Japanese
    -Work load can be super heavy without management's help or guide.
    -Inter department coordination or structure issues can be all on your own.
    -Try hard to survive by yourself, don't count on any others can really help.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to engineer to know what they think and feel.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Yonkers, NY

    ProsLearning the rail car structure and operation
    free turkey on thanksgiving
    year end bonuses(weeks pay)
    christmas off every year

    Consshutdown for the company forces employees to take off without pay or use your earned time for it.
    Management is severely protected and has the benefit of the doubt in ALL cases
    Kawasaki is ANTI UNION !!!!!! wants and does lay off employees in droves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to promote upward mobility and equal oppertunity
    stop teaching specialization and rotate responsibilities to all employees to have a more well rounded staff upper management needs to heed to the employee outcry

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
