    Pros

    Full insurance at no cost, good for families
    Work/life balance, rarely expected more than 40 hours

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement, lower levels paid like peasants.
    Change makes snails blush for how slow it is
    Every group is viewed as a whole, poor employees are not punished, good employees not rewarded.
    Every choice is going back to Japan for denial, then re-work with Japanese ideas
    Middle man with very little value add, place in market is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more, encourage active engagement, take American ideas seriously
    Find a way to delivery significant value beyond holding inventory/payment terms
    Hire and encourage young, bright employees, try to retain their services.

    Pros

    Hours were great and work was not overly challenging.

    Cons

    Repeat work constantly. Boss would cuss out employees and would not hesitate to throw someone under the bus. There was no support from management. Manager was not qualified for job - little education and credentials. Department had constant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Consider termination of certain managers that do not treat their employees correctly - they are an HR issue waiting to happen.

    Pros

    Benefits are ok not spectacular holidays

    Cons

    No room for growth unless you belong to the group of good old boys. Hire people off the street who do not have the experience or capabilities to do the job as members already working at the company. If you work long hours and create new measurements, procedures, up date and improve process you will not get the credit for your work. The select few will take the credit for your work to promote themselves and you will never promote up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being unethical, lying and deceptful. Start walking your talk if you are able.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off policies (Christmas week shutdown). Interesting product lines. Exposure to markets and cultures throughout the world.

    Cons

    Arrogant management that is disrespectful to subordinates. Expectations of a Japanese style work environment (management by embarrassment, long hours)... does little to adapt to local work customs. Minimal training and advancement opportunities, especially if not located at main office. Management gives lip service to training and processes, but really just looks at the budget all day. People are just a tool to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    The market is improving. Other jobs are out there. Time to improve morale and respect to employees or expect to lose more and more of them.

  11. Constantly moving, fun atmosphere
