    I worked at SMC Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Fair salary, decent benefits, great bonus for acheivers (in the past), quality products. In the early years, a very dynamic company with a can do attitude. Customer was first, and the company would find a way to get it done. This resulted in amazing growth and customer acceptance

    Cons

    Orwellian management shifted focus to cost. Micromanagement is now the prime directive. Customers now must adhere to company policies, extended leadtimes, incresed pricing. HQ in Japan seems to be oblivious

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics that fueled your initial success. Hire (rehire) qualified people and let them do their job. Put the customer first and pay attention to your competition. They are using your old playbook against you
