    I worked at Daikin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are friendly, helpful and understanding. Customers are pretty easy to work with.

    Cons

    The interoffice technology is old and not up to date. They need to upgrade all of the software to bring it into the 21st century. The network is very slow. There is still a lot of paper and they need to put paperless technology into place. The middle management staff need to be hired with the proper credentials and be given training. To much micro managing and testosterone (egos).

    Advice to Management

    They need to get middle management hired with the proper credentials for the job they are doing. Technology in the offices and the field needs to be upgraded to current software and technology to match the newest technology of the equipment they manufacture.

    Pros

    Good marketing strategies.
    Good product range and brand acceptability.
    Proper and timely trainings given to team.

    Cons

    A lot of internal politics.

    You will be embarrassed in front of juniors.

    No question is answered but it gives two more questions which need to be answered.

    No work life balance.

    Management believes in sitting late night and working on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Please review what going on in the system which is leading to a lot of employee movement from the company.

    Kindly pay attention to work life balance aspect also as you have hired humans and not machines.
