I have been working at Daikin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Daikin's commitment to the overarching goal of Global #1 means emphasis on quality, kaizen and quick response to identified issues. Lots of changes for the good.
I enjoy helping development, marketing and engineering teams work together. The new leadership in the US is motivated and experienced, ready to make Daikin McQuay a force to be reckoned with.

Cons

Blending of Daikin and McQuay corporate cultures is not an easy process, especially with language differences. Cross-functional communication is still difficult, with heirarchy slowing the flow of information.

Advice to Management

Be open to leaner decision-making processes. Facilitate cooperation between locations with strong leadership at the top.

    I worked at Daikin as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most co workers are very friendly and have worked for the company for over 20 years

    Cons

    Lack of real leadership and mico management at it's WORST. Has to be the quietest place ever. On a floor with over 200 people, at any given time you can hear a pin drop. All you hear is typing on the computer and seeing co workers with their headsets in listening to music or live radio. No room at all to move up. Lack of respect and could care less about raise promises made. Way over worked and totally underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Cut from the top down. Start with the most incompetent HR department I have ever worked with. Your cash & credit department are a total mess and the SAP transfer was a total 6 month nightmare. It should have been implemented in other countries where the branches are before we trusted all our cash info to be screwed up during the SAP going "live" what a joke


  2. "Good place to work and learn, could be a solid career if you are incredibly patient"

    I worked at Daikin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    OK pay, excellent benefits. Necessary resources/equipment are available. Expectations are clear, and usually achievable. Management is generally reasonable. Company is genuinely committed to employees and community.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities. Nonexistent development programs. Dismissive attitude toward US colleagues' contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your younger employees. Their expectations are different from your people that have been there forever and will never leave. There's a reason you are only able to hire people who are out of work.
