No opinion of CEO

Pros

If you perform they leave you alone, hence most successful people stay many years. Great medical/dental/vision plan. Pay package is average.

Cons

Management does not understand the business or customers enough. Not given the leeway to make the primary decisions in running the business.

Advice to Management

Review the old school methods of running a business and join the 21st century using the latest technologies combined with more input from US staff.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are none. The company has no strategy or vision. Senior management are incompetent. The company has been in decline for many years as there is no strategy or vision for the company. Products are designed for Japan markets and shoved down the throats of international markets.

    Cons

    The company is going downhill, led by its parent.The company is a huge conglomerate in thousands of businesses with no critical mass in any one business. The products are all designed in Japan for the Japan market and scant attention is paid to designing products outside of Japan. Senior management is sent overseas from Japan and they spend most of their time playing golf, drinking or socializing.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Japan and let Americans run the business. There is little or no diversity in the work force. All decisions are made by ex-patriots and non-Japanese people are given little or no power or decision making responsibility. You do not understand AMerican or European markets but you are gicen total repsonsibility for the operation when you have no knowledge whatsoever.
