    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Peachtree City, GA

    I worked at TDK as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many of the engineers and mechanics within the plant are very friendly and are fun to talk to. Communication is very good within the plant to aid both yourself and others.

    Cons

    The management method taken by upper management seems to be purely negative reinforcement. All accomplishments are brushed over though you will surely hear about every mistake from someone. Pay here is decent but not good enough to be stressed out in this environment. The problem with this company in the US is that nearly all of TDK is located in Asia where labor is very cheap. Due to this fact plants in the US are constantly in fear of being shut down for not being profitable enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt that the engineers directly above me did a great job training me and helping me do the best job at this company. If the upper management could be more understanding about possible delays as it common in engineering this company would be much better.
