    Pros

    Beautiful City, Great relocation package, Great co-workers and boss, flexible work hours, great morale,no micro management, fun at work, business casual everyday, close to Atlanta and all the exciting things, exciting products, growing company.

    Cons

    Workload getting heavier, that's an indication that the company is growing which is a good thing. That's is why they are hiring more talents.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! and implement more fun stuff, that's what the new generation likes, work smart, play hard. I think you guys are doing it already. Just don't stop doing it.

    Pros

    - If you want to work on Good Technology, this is the place.
    - Good learning opportunity.
    - One of the good part is PASA Gives you responsibility, which builds trust and helps you grow faster.
    - Hence if you perform well, there is a good opportunity of a growth here.
    - There are regular meeting with management. And good part is they hear you and respect you and your suggestions.
    - Very Good Multi culture. Respect everyone.
    - Very Friendly Environment.
    - Good HR to make employees busy and fresh by keeping various events.
    - Competible salary package. Not very excellent, but well better than many others. So satisfied on that part.
    - Company is growing nicely. Which will benefit employees in a long term.
    - One of the major point is the city where the company is : Peachtree city. Really nice, quite and beautiful.

    Cons

    - Some improvement is required in Management. Some of them are very good but few of them needs to change their mindset.
    - Engineering department lacks good amount of documentation. So sometime it takes time for new joiner to settle it.
    - Long working hours sometimes. Mainly when customer releases are there. HR should communicate with ENG Management to improve that.
    - Cafeteria is very nice. But the available food options are less. Minor point though.
    - Awards or appreciations are little less compare to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve processes. Motivate team members more ( awards/recognition ). Have little control over extra working hours.

    Pros

    free-form thought process, casual Friday everyday, dedicated to self improvement, you are important to your manager

    Cons

    no paid overtime for salaried, managers tend to be too lax, weak new hire training

    We appreciate your kind words. Our managers would rather give their employees flexibility than having to micromanage their employees. During our new hire training we are not only informing, but ... More

    Pros

    Continuous work makes it a safe place to work.

    Cons

    Investing a little more on a software that would linked all manufacturing areas would be nice. Most still use Excel spread sheets.

    Advice to Management

    Open opportunities for upper management for long time current employees.

    Pros

    Foremost, the company leads the market as the top supplier in North America to the Automotive Industry. So, as an engineer, you can't beat working on technology that will likely be in almost every vehicle on the road in a couple years' time. The company is really investing a lot in training, employee development, and employee engagement. Also, I love the location...love raising my family in the Peachtree City area!

    Cons

    Every company certainly has things to improve on, but I really appreciate how the company is dedicated towards making improvements...you can really see where they care about being the best they can for their internal workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in the direction of more engagement. Overall, doing a great job, but everyone could improve in that area overall...never such a thing as too much engagement.

    Pros

    I was hesitant to accept the offer from Panasonic Automotive...not because I wasn't excited about the opportunity to be a part of the engineering team but because of the relocation aspect involved. I was living in the western U.S. when I underwent my interviews and called that region home for the majority of my life.

    I've been with PASA for almost 3 months now and can honestly say I'm very happy with my decision to join the company. They took care of me during the relocation process with a great package, I've been able to work with software technology that is industry best in class, and have been given the opportunity to be an influential part of this organization. Also, Peachtree City, GA is beautiful (not what I had in mind before I visited) and a place I'm excited to raise my family.

    Cons

    I think the main "con" I would point out is the misperception of the company. PASA is the leading supplier to the automotive industry, yet not many know this given our products are not represented in the vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like management is really working towards enhancing employee engagement, so I don't have much advice at this point.

    Pros

    There are some very nice people that work here.

    Cons

    Upper/Senior Managment does not want to commit to its contractors and most all employees start out as a contractor.
    They are not very nice to females in particular. Very lazy when it comes to training, you are thrown into the work with little to no direction.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and honest with the contractors, do not lead anyone to believe that they are going to become an employee and then when that time comes back out of the offer. Make training a priority.

    Pros

    My experience as a new employee at Panasonic Automotive Systems has been excellent. All of my management interactions have been positive. I feel that I am compensated appropriately for my skills and contributions. I like to innovate, and I have the opportunity to do so. Panasonic is a large corporation, but the corporate culture is healthy and accepting of diversity.

    Cons

    Because of its success in winning new automotive business, there is always more that needs to be done. I do not see this as a fundamental problem.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice to management.
