Pros

Startup. You get to be able to work on a number of different jobs in different locations. There is very little structure so that you have no idea what the strategy is or what the goals are.

Cons

Startup. Alot of politics. There were a number of layoffs. The CEO was incompetant. The problem is that you get people with a good pedigree, but who are unable to get anything done.

Advice to Management

They need to be more aware of bottom line

    Pros

    When you get the support from Japan, business was good. Great brand, old and stodgy right now, but you could do so much with it.

    Cons

    They hate doing business in the US. The margins are so thin especially compared to Europe and Asia. They have a great brand, but except in Japan they are doing little with it. They need tor re-invigorate the brand and get people in there that are competent and let them do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Build the brand in the US to become relevant again.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Panasonic electronic products are good

    Cons

    no room for career advancement...EVER. the Same top level management in place year after year. Panasonic will remain a quagmire because of superfluous business processes and management ability. politics interfere with problem resolution. employees fear retaliation for speaking out.

    Advice to Management

    understand the job your staff is doing, the customers and organizations they work with and the issues they face.
