    I worked at M-Tek

    Pros

    Good wages and great people.

    Cons

    Unorganized and management don't want to listen to fix the problems. Needs a more advanced system and EDI abilities. Needs to be on the same technology communications as major customers and in the 21st century. Software is old unless your management. Good ole boy system. Keep hiring new management and don't consider feedback from the grunt workers. Concerns mentioned are, "the nuts and bolts" of a much bigger operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who do the work to make the profit!

    Current Employee - Buyer in Manchester, TN
    Current Employee - Buyer in Manchester, TN

    I have been working at M-Tek full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great insurance and benefits, great people that work there and bonds are formed. In the process of restructuring and its a great time to join and improve with the company.

    Cons

    Pay rate stinks! I have been underpaid as a salaried employee from the first day. The computer systems are ancient and there is no proper flow of information or procedure in place. M-Tek is very much a "good ole boy" facility. Due to high volumes of turnover in recent years, mostly new management. I do see bits and pieces of improvement but it is a very slow change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving internal processes and bring M-Tek into the 21st century... and get SAP! There are far too many errors that are completely unnecessary and are extremely costly. SAP is very user friendly and will reduce overhead in the long run. All injection machines should have mixers at their lines or we should have a vacuum system that feeds each too with resin. Convince Kasai that they need to reinvest our profits into system and process improvements and reduce costs by sending most of the Japanese back to Japan. Americans are capable of doing efficient and running a business.

    It has been eye-opening seeing how a company so big can be so backward to progressive thinking in industry.

    Current Employee - Quality Engineer in Manchester, TN
    Current Employee - Quality Engineer in Manchester, TN

    I have been working at M-Tek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    M-Tek / Kasai is able to make some very good-pooking products using technology that is out-of-date and in need of major service or replacement.
    Health benefits are outstanding, but with recent changes coming from HR, I don't hold much hope of keeping them long-term.

    Cons

    There are a ton of procedures that no one knows and no one follows. The biggest quality problems they have are missing components, wrong components, mislabeled product and other concerns that are not true defects but assembly or inventorycontrol errors but they will not invest in a robust inventory control system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on inventory control and labeling, component verification through robust poke yokes and stop relying on people to catch the errors.

    Pros

    Good Insurance that is all.Only reason here.

    Cons

    There are not any structured qualifications for advancement, racial harassment is condoned and accepted. HR department is a joke plant and corporate. The company does not want employees to know their legal rights. Advancement in the company is striclty based on if you are liked or sleeping around with management staff. A Sr Mgr joked with a shop floor employee about finding a "big ti@@y woman to snuggle up with. Sr Mgr. asked what it would be like to" scr#w " a shop floor employee. HR no action. HR picks and chooses what it will respond to. NO TRUST OF Management on any level. Making bad parts and passing on to the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability at ALL levels. Stop promoting yes men and flunkees. Restructure educate HR staff. that will slow down the rotating door of employees. Lost quality employees
