    Pros

    Takata is a place with a lot of business, and I never ever had to worry about lack of work. A lot of knowledgeable people work there. The benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Too much work! There are only so many programs you can track. At one point I had 3 programs (commodities) with 2 customers.

     It takes10 years of working to get 3 weeks of vacation (most companies it's 5). The compensation is very below average, but even with a lot of people leaving there are no raises- I'm not sure HR gets it Of course you should probably ask people why they left and that might help too. There is also a non-compete agreement you are required to sign, but it is really not enforceable and is not enforced.

    Lots of turnover (about 35% of the people in my old group of have left in the past year), and new hires. Hiring people out of college is OK (I don't think Takata offers enough to attract the top talent), but as a more experienced person you have no time to help them out and teach them real engineering .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people- but you have to ask them first! Pay the people who work so hard for you competitively and fairly or they will find a place that will.
