    I worked at Panasonic Avionics Corporation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They treat employees fairly and have a solid compensation package. Most departments strive for a good work / life balance and their their are opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    It can be chaotic at time and, as I'm sure it is in all companies, there are managers who need training and they could be more responsive in that regard.

    Advice to Management

    Take a strong look at the project management practices. Sometimes time is not spent well and things have to be done multiple time because they was not clear communication from the start.

    I worked at Panasonic Avionics Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    interesting industry travel for work good if you just drink the kool-aid, don't make any waves, do as you're told and don't ask questions

    Cons

    I think there are other posts that talk about how antiquated the management styles are. If you're looking for a company that strives on "corporate culture", young talent, who also values employees, encourages team work, and recognizes hard work - then this company is NOT for you. If you are a millennial, this company is NOT for you. If you have ideas, or want to share your ideas on how to make processes easier/better - this company is NOT for you - because no one cares. "This is the way we have always done it and if it isn't broke, don't fix it." Extremely high turn over rate. Management has no idea how to motivate and retain young talent. Little/no innovation. Lots of office politics and games.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from the other larger organizations on what they're doing right and how they're retaining talent. With the way technology is moving, good luck being here in another 10 years. If you don't adapt, you're not growing, and if you're not growing, you're dying.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Panasonic Avionics Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PAC is working on some amazing tech; regardless of what you like to do, there is work in that subject to be done. I quickly took over an entire project and handled electrical design changes and hardware testing. The hardware labs are well stocked with parts and test equipment.

    Cons

    There are meeting about meetings about meetings, and the information is all redundant or irrelevant. Project Managers are crazy about schedules that engineers are just making up anyway - those meetings are beyond pointless. It is hard to get work done because so many lab workers don't speak English very well. I rarely knew where to go or who to talk with to get some part or tool that I needed.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out a few tiers of management - the pyramid has gotten too high.

    Flexible hrs, great office environment, the opportunity to learn both software and hardware development.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on training and developing current PMs. High turnover rate hurts customer relationships.
