    Listen to staff about education and future development.

    I have been working at CalsonicKansei North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Superb benefits package makes it easier to tolerate the poor management, inconsistent hours, excessive demands, and bad work environment (no where to escape the noise, filth, and heat).

    Cons

    Management is constantly reinventing the wheel overtaxing the employees. This results in consistently low morale across the plant. If there was more focus on maintaining some of the institutional knowledge, the employees wouldn't need to reinvent solutions to problems.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of your managers (you have too many who don't talk to each other) and focus on retaining institutional knowledge.
