    Pros

    The perks is that everyone is nice and professional at Sumitomo, the engineers take their time in trying to help students learn more about wire harnesses

    Cons

    One thing that could be improved at Sumitomo is the responsibility of the student co-op's, I believe the co-op's at sumitomo are very under utilized and should get more tasks.

    Pros

    Good healthcare & 401k benefits, good job-security. Employees rarely get fired at this company.

    Cons

    There are limited opportunities for career advancement. Promotion for local employees is based on tenure. Management positions are mostly filled by Japanese expats who come to the US on 4-5 year assignment. They don't have vested interest in the long-term success of the company.

    Employees get only 5 days of PTO per year until the 4 year of employment.

    Very long work hours in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Localize more management-level positions. Offer better salary and PTO package.

    Pros

    Good work environment
    OK liberty to create and implement new ideas
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Not a lot of interesting corporate promotions/positions
    Lacks a lot of training. Needs world-class training for such a big company
    No motivation

    Advice to Management

    You should invest more on motivation and creating a much more 'modern' company where people can work from anywhere and be more freely to do a lot more.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment - Everyone was very helpfull
    Low stress
    Decent pay for a college student
    Good work out facilities

    Cons

    My main issue with this job was the fact that the employees I worked with were not very motivated to go above and beyond. For example I completed all work assigned to me in the first half of the day. When I asked for more work I was told by a senior employee "slow down young fellow, we don't want to set the bar too high."
