    I have been working at Aisin Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities for continuous improvement due to unstructured processes
    Limited to no layoffs at corporate level during sales downturn
    Location and building

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement
    Salary is on the low end of market rate

    Local N.A. team members and Japanese management are not aligned with their goals and objectives. There is a big disconnect with the vision for success in North America.

    Advice to Management

    Support and develop local team members and recruit top talent rather than the lowest cost candidate

    Pros

    Good PTO and vacation time,and great team building activities, good pay

    Cons

    This job is RACIST and SEXIEST. Upper management and men have no respect for women or people with low status. I am surprised this place is not on the news. The Japanese people are very disrespectful and they dont really care for Americans. Seems like they just need Americans to be the face of the company. When I say management is a JOKE they have no training what so ever. If you are black, they stick the title assistant manager on you have you complain to them about not moving up, but with that title you have no say so over anything. They dont listen to complaints and upper management does not even speak to you or say good morning. I could go on and on..

    Advice to Management

    Stop being racist, start greeting your fellow employees, more training,

    Listen to your employees and actually investigate complaints

    I worked at Aisin Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    (Aisin Electronics, Inc in Stockton, CA) Aisin uses a wide variety of manufacturing technology in its assembly of electronics devices, including robots (Fanuc, Denso, IAI acuators, etc), injection molding machines, resistance welding machines to name a few, and this gives great hands-on experience to new production engineers. Aisin is also good at training new engineers in the fundamentals needed by manufacturing engineers.

    Cons

    (Aisin Electronics, Inc in Stockton, CA) Aisin Electronics is a small Japanese owned "child" company of the large international Aisin Seiki company. Being such, it is largely treated like a colony of Japan whose purpose is to extract profit and to train inexperienced Japanese managers who hope to gain favor and promotion back in Japan during their 3 year stint in the US. There is a disconnect between management and everyone else causing obvious systemic flaws in the company as the US managers that tend to be promoted are people that say 'yes yes yes' to the Japanese executives and don't challenge them when they are making a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    A great help to the company would be to have long term Japanese executives who stay for 7-10 years, giving time to understand and then act in American culture.
