    I worked at YKK AP America full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This company was very close to home, and every one of my Co-workers were very easy to get along with.

    Cons

    When I was brought in temp to hire there was no one to really explain the software systems, so it was truly sink or swim.

    Upper management seemed to shy away from updating older systems.

    You can believe a word out of upper management mouth about job security. This was the first place I have ever worked were bonuses where given to employees then close to half of the staff was let go due to funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff and live by your word

    Pros

    Innovative product., talented people and good benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours, unrealistic workload with the tools and resources provided. Materials and Order management system using technology from the 1980's. Senior and middle management suffers from a case of "the emperor's new clothes" syndrome- internally the company operates just above the threshold of total chaos / collapse and individuals in management only care to protect themselves rather than make the changes that would improve workflow and efficiency resuting in exponentially increased revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the changes that would improve workflow and efficiency resuting in increased revenue.
