    Pros

    Smart people with a strong broad product portfolio. Company is Growing very fast. Nice showrooms with products to actually demo.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings, conference calls and paperwork. Workflows stink. Lots of under utilized space in my tech center, but on the bright side room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Share more information with your employees and trust them to get the job done.

    Pros

    • Great place to work for a resume boast
    • PTO/Sick days
    • relaxed environment

    Cons

    Honestly don’t look for this place to be a long term experience, just learn what you can and keep your career options open. The company usually sends in current employees from Japan to the United States on a work visa. They sometimes get married, and never return to home to Japan. Which can lead to “chain migration” which is a HUGE problem our country is suffering from.
    The company stresses the issue that you’ll have to adopt the Japanese work ethics, but all the while you’re not in Japan! You’re in America! So it should be the other way around! The Japanese employees are seemingly afraid of black men, and often don’t socialize with American employees at all, so there’s a slight division. Communication is a huge problem with the language barrier being present, which can lead to a misconception of character.
    Don’t bother HR with your problems. You’re just a replaceable person, and that’s how you’ll get treated so handle your problems with a clear outlook. Also there’s a atmosphere of anxiety that everyone suffers from, so employees are often paranoid, which can lead to playground like drama.
    In conclusion just stay focused on the thought of a resume boast. This will NOT be a company you’ll retire from.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to speak English
    And stop being so cowardly of Americans

    Pros

    Very intelligent colleagues and good product that customers appreciate. Salary is generally competitive for this industry and benefits are solid (although they have recently eroded for cost saving measures)

    Cons

    Group CEO vision changes daily. Employees are not treated with respect and trust. Tag lines such as "thrive, not just survive" are said to who will listen yet not one measurable action to improve staff satisfaction and engagement has been implemented.

    What they sell you when you interview is not close to what they deliver. Old School and Traditional Japanese culture makes communication difficult at best. Motivated employees will constantly feel undervalued.

    If you want to collect a paycheck and make lots of connections in the industry with great manufacturing shops, this is a good stop for your resume. If you want to do something special - look elsewhere. Your hard work, enthusiasm, and desire to take the company forward will not be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at the face of your immediate supervisor or trying to guess what top management wants you to do.

    Don't fire managers who put in years and years of effort for the employee and customer - they were the main reason most of us stayed there.

    I worked at DMG MORI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    In exchange for long, long hours and arcane, tedious bureaucracy, there was a good benefits package and (up until recently) good job stability.

    Opportunity to receive literal hands on experience. (You may go in an engineer, but you will also become a technician)

    Cons

    -Upper management doesn't really seem to know what is going on
    -Middle management doesn't really seem to know what is going on
    -Cost analysis seems to be a shell game
    -Departments within the company are pitted against each other (No one should commit the sin of being a cost center)
    -American employees seem to be expendable.

    Advice to Management

    People are not expendable

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, competitive pay, schedule is balanced, great benefits, and pto is always approved

    Cons

    Little room for growth, the company prefers to only excel men due to the culture. Employee suggestions are rarely taken seriously. Management buts heads too much. New roles and openings aren’t announced until they’re already filled

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees who work hard and are dedicated and deserve it

    Pros

    A great group of people in an exciting industry. Nice bi-yearly bonus when profits are up.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with regular employees.. lack of performance reviews that you may be flying blind on quality of work. HR policies are draconian and unforgiving.

    Advice to Management

    This used to be a great company to work for, but it has shifted to consider corporate profits over the well being of employees. Rather than develop long term employees, it easier to terminate them and hire lower cost temps.

    Pros

    Good pay and bonuses when I first started. Hours not too demanding.

    Cons

    They stopped giving bonuses at the end of 2016. Factory is not run well, and is often behind on production, so engineers would often have to work as assemblers for months at a time.
