      Pros

      Being associated with a brand name. Mediocre benefits. Casual dress/atmosphere.

      Cons

      No emphasis put on planning for a sustainable future. Very reactionary with a 'what are the other guys doing" attitude. Very low room for growth within the company, no succession plans for the 90% of management that is of retirement age.

      Advice to Management

      Find out what makes the other brands successful and improve on that. Stop waiting for the fan to get hit to move into action.

      I have been working at American Suzuki Motor full-time

      Pros

      There are few. The employee purchase program is OK, but the product line is so old, very few riders here use the company's products. Look at the motorcycle parking area... It's close to home, and generally a lax work environment.

      Cons

      Where to begin? There seems to be no real goal for this place except to keep on keepin' on. Managers and staff have no idea about company goals, there is no team effort toward any one task. There is selective enforcement of policies, and virtually no documentation of standard procedures. People just do what they have been doing for years. There is no succession plan, so who knows what will happen when the old guys...

      Advice to Management

      Hard to say. We can make the best plan in the world to regrow the brand and product line for the US market, but if the main office doesn't want to hear it, we're just screaming into the wind.

      Pros

      Nothing really....you need to buy company shirts, there are roaches literally running across your desk while you work

      Cons

      EVERYTHING, management does not care about employees, they do not share the direction on the company, Japanese managers are rude and condescending towards employees, you will not get promoted unless you have been with the company for 20 years. Management does not listen to employees ideas, even if they are cost saving.

      Advice to Management

      Fire your entire management team, look to promote employees to management and relize this is not the Japanese market.
