    Pros

    Multitude of engineering projects, opportunities to learn new things. Dynamic and mostly friendly work environment. Good corporate culture. Decent pay and benefits, and good work-life balance. Stable and profitable company in a growing industry.

    Cons

    The flip side of stability: many incompetent employees, at all levels. Too much cronyism and politics at the top. Dynamic work environment sometimes turns into chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Stability is part of Panasonic culture, and is a good thing, but incompetent employees should not be promoted or maintained in management positions. Start by weeding out incompetent managers from the clique at the top of Engineering. Preserve Panasonic culture and Matsushita principles.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Health insurance is the best, matching 401K, and lots of paid time off.

    Cons

    Inter-departmental communication is sometimes lacking. In some departments, personnel seem pidgeon-holed and cannot see the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable

    Pros

    More stability than your typical high-tech pressure cooker. Values of the Japanese founder is still evident.

    Cons

    No one is getting dangerously wealthy, which can be good or bad depending on your point of view.

    Pros

    Great organization with a strong winning attitude! PAC doesn't like to lose and works hard to ensure that the people, technology and solutions stay ahead of the competition.

    Cons

    A large organization that is run by managed chaos at times. Can be a very political arena with a strong inner circle running the plays. Also, the work/life balance can be disproportionate at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the winning attitude and helping to ensure that people strike a work/personal life balance.

    Pros

    It is great working for a company that is the leader in the industry. There is a constant drive for innovation and customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    The pace can be chaotic, however in my opinion that is what leads to innovation so its not really a negative

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees for feedback on what is working and what needs to improve

    Pros

    As of now, market leader in IFE No micro-management Near flexible work hours Unlimited sick days Very difficult to get laid off/fired unless you totally screwed up. Low hiring standard makes it easy to get in, especially for mediocre engineers. Most people are friendly to work with.

    Cons

    In-flight entertainment systems are becoming less significant as more passengers are bringing their own tablets and laptops which only need Wi-Fi to Internet. Very difficult to move up even a single level and get a descent raise. You have a better chance of getting them outside the company. Employee performance review is horrible and very biased. Even if you did solid job but if your boss doesn't like you then your performance score gets screwed. The company needs to put in 360 and peer reviews for fairness. Full of complacent long timers who like to keep status quo and stopped innovating. Very hard to move laterally within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest, expand the business, and innovate more. Company is too focused on IFE. Think about what would happen if suddenly there's no more airplane.
