    I have been working at Murata Machinery full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits, 401K and profit sharing are not great but, decent. There are many opportunities for overtime work. Three weeks PTO/year goes up to four after you have been with the company 5 years. Company provides tools for the job such as hand tools and laptop computer. Company Iphone is provided and can be used for personal calls as well. Travel expense coverage is above average for the industry.
    Since the company has three lines of business, when one area is not doing so well, the others can provide support until things pick up in that area that is struggling. Because Murata Machinery is a privately owned company, it does not have the pressures attributed to a publically traded company. This company has potential if only...........

    Cons

    Murata Machinery USA, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Murata Machinery Ltd. which is a privately owned company in Japan. It is one company with three main business lines; Machine Tools, Material Handling Equipment (has two sub-groups) and Textile Machinery. The negative side to having 3 lines of business is that your energies can be fragmented and if they are in different industries, economies of scale are harder to realize. US Management appears to be more handicapped by the Japanese parent company than empowered by it. I have heard more than one manager say, "We don't make the decisions here, Japan does." There is no mechanism or structure to encourage or enable an individual to be promoted from within the company. Training of US employees is not a top priority and only done when absolutely necessary.( It's pretty much OJT on the technical side.) New hires are extended a "Take it or leave it" offer and once you are on board there is no disclosure of what pay scale you will be operating under. Since it is a Japanese company, it is not run based on the typical American company model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. The status quo is holding the company back. Review and re-apply Dr. W. Edwards Deming philosophy.
