Pros

If you are an enthusiast (MC) you'll find good comrades. While not great poduct/parts/accessories prices are OK. Auto lease program. Good benefits, but employees must contribute as of 2008.

Cons

ASMC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corp. Japan. Ther are 20% Japanese nationals in US operations assigned for 5 years. They are running the company on a day to day basis rather than as overseers of the operations that the Americans know better i.e. market. Auto division is 45th of 45 competitors in market, CEO in Japan is dedicated to Auto sucess, this is brining the corporation down. Worst of both worlds; Japanese corporation with no 10 year plan, concerned with next quarters profits, American Corp where personal input is shunned. Upper (Japanese) management adopts US corporate management style and executes ruthlessly (rather than Japanese style). Management runs on fear of Japan. Parent company is so large and poorly run it is mired down in it's own policy, none of which seem to be written down.

Advice to Management

Lock the Japanese in a room. Hire good directors and middle managers, let them take care of the US market. Invest in infrastructure. Innovate and be aggressive in market ...not 6 years behind it.

    I worked at American Suzuki Motor full-time

    Pros

    Small training department presents great challenge. Huge potential for personal growth in same position as one find himself doing all aspects of training from curriculum design, course development, eLearning development to course scheduling and delivery.

    Cons

    Too much work load. Company restraints from employing new staff leading to current employees having to carry out multiple tasks. Room for growth is too small.

    Advice to Management

    Your staff complement must grow with your business. Marketing department still stereotyped, the need new blood that can think out of the box and tap into lots of untapped markets.
