    I worked at Yamaha full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable company, work and life balance.

    Cons

    No room for innovation, very traditional and archaic way of managing projects.

    Advice to Management

    Get updated with the technology and be more open to new ideas. There is always a better way to do things.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yamaha (Buena Park, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    An HR associate set up a screening call with me. She called promptly at the agreed time, and went through her questions. The call lasted 15 minutes. At the end, she volunteered what the next steps would be, and asked that if I hadn't heard back from her by a certain date, I should contact her to see what the status was. I didn't hear from her, and emailed her on the date she gave me. She never responded. Unprofessional and a poor representation of the company, to say the least.
