    I worked at Mitsubishi Electric as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They offer lots of flexibility. You are able to have a very balanced work and family life. It is great to work at a place where you get every Friday off of work. It is also nice to get two weeks off at Christmas and two weeks off in the summer.

    Cons

    A lot of the jobs have left the area and are going outside the country. The pay is low with the high cost of living in Orange County.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the jobs in California.

    I have been working at Mitsubishi Electric as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    - Proximity to home

    Really not much pro's to add here.

    Cons

    - Manager's take no interest in team
    - Absentee manager's are hard to get a hold of
    - un-realistic time lines
    - no methodology in use and no desire to adhere to one
    - Project Manager has no concern of deadlines or work assigned
    - no cohesive unit at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more interest in the software side of your business. Get a good solid project manager in there. Adopt a formal methodology and adhere to it - SCRUM would be a good fit from what I've experienced. Nail down a project management plan and a scope of work. Change management should also be considered. The IT hardware and IT software should SEPARATE businesses - hire leadership that understands software development and meets the deadlines. Too much money is wasted on change of scope and no formal requirements. Throwing money and people to a problem only leads to a bigger problem not a solution.
