    Pros

    Good Technologies and serious commitment to customers.

    Cons

    Salary and head count did not keep up with cost of living and business growth. Career growth is challenging with Japanese Management turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark compensation. Focus on cost improvements - not cutting head count

    Pros

    Lots of intelligent people, nice locations and excellent collaboration between various groups. They respect an individual's ability to execute and recognize it. Leading technology in the automotive realm.

    Cons

    Individuals are not always held to be accountable and allowed to float through the jobs, which puts a burden on others. Sometimes, once a plan is put in place, it is not deviated from. Not all roles are always thought out. Lots of overtime due to market pressures.

    Advice to Management

    Review roles of individuals to ensure they are accomplishing their roles. There are slim margins and plans, which need refocused. Plans need adjusted as a project is engaged, if it was not adequately planned for.

    Current Employee - Contractor Software Engineer in Peachtree City, GA

    I have been working at Panasonic Automotive Systems Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work in Peachtree City which is a small town. So commuting is very easy if you stay in this town. At work both contract and permanent employee is the same. For permanent employees, I have not heard anyone getting fired in my 4 years of association.

    Cons

    As a contract employee I can only say of the work life here. Generally tough, late work hours. Tight schedules. generally Contract to Hire is very rate occurrence. 1 in 10/20 gets in.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. its their business model.

    I have been working at Panasonic Automotive Systems Company full-time

    Pros

    Industry-leading, innovative company that empowers it's employees and seeks to make great changes. The team I work on and the teams I've had interactions with have all been fun, encouraging, challenging, smart, and outside-of-the-box thinkers. This company doesn't run the way you'd think a larger organization would. There is a lot of open communication, expectations are transparent and reasonable, and there is a lot of fun to be had as well.

    Cons

    With it being a larger company, sometimes it may take a little longer to get through changing something or a process. So far it hasn't been painful, just something I noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your employees and helping them to build on and advance their careers.

    Pros

    Management gives teams the support needed to get these awesome infotainment systems out the door. Panasonic is being recognized for their great track record by being awarded contracts by companies like ford to replace their current Microsoft ford sync solution.

    Cons

    Tight timelines to deliver new technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding hard work!

    Pros

    The Automotive industry is always changing, the ability of the people to adapt and create new technology is something that should be highly sought after in a company - and it is at PASA. The company is full of bright people of all walks of life that engage in open discussion and promote the leaning of new ideas and methods. Staff genuinely care about the projects they're working on and the people involved in the process.

    Cons

    The company structure is HIGHLY confusing - two or three companies within the Panasonic umbrella sit under one building and can be confusing to work with at times. Additionally the culture differences can sometimes cause small issues within teams between companies.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more control for staff engineers. Its hard to progress farther into projects when you need to elevate issues through a hierarchy of senior engineers when a short conversation with management about an open issue would suffice.
