    I have been working at TS Tech North America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have personally learned a lot about manufacturing. The value of quality is something that I am really impressed with. Customer is always # 1. Great benefits!

    Cons

    Not all management understands good leadership. There are a lot of people in the "out group" which effects moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely need more attention placed on training managers to be effective leaders.

    Pros

    Good company with competitive benefits

    Cons

    Japanese management does not always acknowledge the American management as part of the management team and decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop a system to ensure that the J side and the A side are not giving people different direction. This makes it very difficult to fulfill associate responsibilities not to mention confusing. When management is not on the same page how do you expect them to be capable of managing such a large company with balance.

    I have been working at TS Tech North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    TS Tech USA provides a good benefit package with medical, dental, and vision coverage in several tiers. The company offers two weeks paid vacation and two weeks paid shutdown. The pay is decent for the area.

    Cons

    Antiquated management style mixed with an attempt at lean manufacturing. Although it is a non-union company seniority seems to be an inordinately high factor in choosing to promote individuals. There is a culture of ignorance which most likely stems from the fact that the majority of managers were former factory workers with no advanced education other than a sprinkling of training seminars. Many of the "Engineers" are glorified clerks with no other requirement than a high school diploma.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to better use your resources, including your team members. Realize that length of service is a meaningless metric for measuring merit. Reward intelligence, knowledge, and teamwork not entrenchment.

    Pros

    Great benefits, payed time off (2 weeks out the year) 401k match. We get bonuses 2 times a year. And the pay is good compared to other places.

    Cons

    If you want to move up the ladder than this is not the place for you, they care about seniority too much. The longer you're there the better your chances even if you're not qualified. And there is too much favoritism, and upper management is totally clueless of what they're doing. And the hours are terrible, if you work at night you can't move to morning unless you've been there for ages, and if you are in mornings you will get bumped to nights if you don't have seniority. (Work life balance is not good)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick more qualified people to manage

    Pros

    The staff are friendly and professional. Your opinion matters and they appreciate your expertise. The benefits are nice (401K and good insurance).

    Cons

    The amount of hours required (60 avg.) and the constantly changing production schedule provides little latitude for much work / life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect that your employees have limits. Hire the appropriate amount of staff and quit looking to constantly try and save money by cutting corners on staff.

    My first factory job!...Ouch!...

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Clean, safe work environment. Friendly employees.

    Cons

    High-speed, labor intensive work. Training is done by other workers instead of professional trainers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cafeteria sucks (trust me, I know the food industry). You should invite a food truck to show up for lunch; it's an easy way to provide another option.

    Pros

    The actual job itself is usually pretty interesting. Particularly on R&D Side. You will get a lot of exposure to design and automotive engineering methods.

    Cons

    Management is not good. Particularly in the R&D side and it appears to be getting much worse. Within the past few years retention has become a serious issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming HR dept. for your poor management policies. Look to the root cause of retention problems and not at your perceptions.
