The only tangible Pro is the benefits package. Tough to beat it. Not to be confused with pay. The "compensation philosophy", if you even want to call it that, is almost always below market. This place has some good people but most of them are fleeing due to the corruption around the senior leadership.
Where does one begin? Every corporation has it's politics but the amount of corruption, especially at the leadership level, is unprecedented. The most corrupt of which is the crown o-f human-resources. (Yes, isn't it ironic?). This person is everything an HR professional isn't supposed to be. The crown o-f H-R lacks integrity, ethics, basic professional etiquette, is technologically challenged, and has no respect for anyone's time. When what should be the center of ethics and integrity is so corrupt, it is hard to expect anything better from their peers at the top. In terms of company culture, this place is a Japanese company at heart. If you bust your bum and are complacent with little growth, pay increase, or bonus, you are likely to keep a job here for decades. If you are a self-starting game changer, you will weed yourself out. The culture is the way it is, not by coincidence and the Japanese are not interested in changing it because to enough of a degree, it keeps the Americas region just slightly above water. Women should note that there is serious discrimination going on in this place. There is no equal pay or growth opportunity. The Japanese are okay with this.....because it's allowed on their side of the pond. I would not recommend taking a job at this place unless you were absolutely desperate.
Advice to Management
Let go of your crown-o-f-H-R. It has created a very deflating, hostile, and uncomfortable environment and the business is feeling the impact. Replace it with someone who is an advocate of a rewarding culture and hard working honest employees. Also, if you want the America's region to ever be competitive in the supply chain industry as an American entity, it's time to invest in real ethical leadership who understand how to identify and motivate top talent to win.
