    Pros

    I enjoy the people that I work with on a daily basis and the pace of work

    Cons

    Sometimes there is to much process and red tape. Many other departments don't carry their weight, which leaves the workload to someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Salaried associates need to have a serious look at pay rate raise. Don' t just compare them to the SARG, they need to be compared to all industries in the rest of the surrounding region.

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

    Pros

    Zero pros. Worst company I've ever worked for. My pay was decent and that is about all. Hated every second at this company.

    Cons

    This company loves to waste time on the most idodic tasks. There is no putting into words how underdeveloped the management staff is.

    Advice to Management

    Require management courses and develop a consistent style throughout the company.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Pick more qualified people to manage
