    Pros

    clean,and simple. pay is decent. One of the easiest A&P jobs you can ever expect to have.

    Cons

    pay is decent, however don't expect to make much in raises... After two years only a 1.05$ raise...Mcdonalds gets a 3$ raise after two years...

    Laptops are fairly decent however one laptop must be shared by 3 employees making paper work a pain... not to mention the occasional laptop breakdown.

    Promotions are close to none. Favoritism is clearly evident however this maybe only a localized situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your supervisors aren't always right. Give credit where it is deserved.

    Pros

    Panasonic Avionics truly cares for their employees. Competitive wages, amazing benefits, and caring management are some of the trademarks of this company.

    Cons

    Panasonic Avionics is a fast paced environment. While there are many programs available and management tries to manage the work load stress can be an issue if not managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Thank you for caring so much about your employees.

    I have been working at Panasonic Avionics Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company has (virtually) unlimited days of sick time. Time-off policies are geared towards supporting employee health and family. The company is stable given that it operates in a very niche market of In-Flight Entertainment. Personal growth is limited.

    Cons

    Bonus is a joke at this company. Most experienced people gets few thousand dollars compared to many other companies paying $20K to 35K bonus. 401K benefit is also poor. Maximum you get 4% employer match compared to other employers matching 8% to 12%. The upper management is almost born in this company so they don't have much real world of management experience. You are expected to work your head down and don't ask any questions to the manager. Personal growth is almost nil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just look around the mgmt. style at other big companies. Telecommuting, Flexible work hours is the norm these days. PAC does not need to shy away from implementing it.

    Pros

    Dynamic, creative environment with lots of opportunity and access to responsibility. Overwhelming market share with significant revenue growth potential in future.

    Cons

    Self-interested senior management that shows little regard or concern for employees. Politics and favoritism abound. Silos and empire building are commonplace. Trivial oversight in bloated top level management ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve efficiency in management structure. Add to ranks of producers. Eliminate useless management positions that provide little contribution. Install a meritocracy.
