    Pros

    Depending on who you work with, some upper management tries to understand from top to bottom what goes on

    Cons

    Depending on who you work with, some upper management does NOT try to understand from top to bottom what goes on. Maximizing profits with the least amount of man power as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck

    Pros

    Good benefits, wide range of products; interesting technology; strong product position; good job security; low pressure performance matrix; strong balance sheet;

    Cons

    significant interference from Japan to the point of undermining local management; archaic management philosophy and manufacturing processes; good performance seldom recognized or rewarded; report writing viewed more important than ability to create sales or profits; no control over production process

    Advice to Management

    set up training to learn state of the art management processes, methodology and manufacturing planning and scheduling. Bring in lean experts and top management oversee successful implementation of recommendations.
