    Top Quality Products, Top Quality People, Making a difference in people's lives everyday!

    National Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Buena Park, CA

    ProsYamaha values its employees and continues to find ways to show us and ensure we are motivated and working in a supportive, fun and innovative culture. It is amazing how the company cares about their people. Instead of just saying it, they show it. I have not had the experience of working at a company where everyone truly gets along and there is little political motives. Yamaha values their product/brand, their customers and their people. I am very proud and lucky to work for such an inspiring company!

    ConsThe only cons would be where the corporate office is located since CA is very expensive.

    No clarity!

    Special Projects (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe objectives of the NY office were clear, and the team there the right mix of people to actually make it happen. The location was great, the hours never a problem, and the people smart and relatively interesting, with a few glaring exceptions.

    ConsThe charter of the NY office was clear to the NY office but not to ANY OTHER subsidiary within this very large global company. Who was actually calling the shots/directing the strategy was never really clear, so it was difficult to ask questions, shift direction, make change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClarify the role of the subsidiary and empower the people there to succeed!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
