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

Pros

Free food in the break room.

Cons

Incompetent workforce that is widespread and widely acceptable.
Lack of accountability, professionalism, and resources in every group.
Low morale and extremely dissatisfied, unhappy employees.
Massive recall of ~3.1 million airbags resulting in a loss of $307M. Google it. Investors beware.
Lack of innovation, inventions, goals. Clock in, clock out, non-competitive, unsustainable environment.
Poor performing plants, plant management, and senior management.

Advice to Management

Continue to put your relatives on the payroll.

    I worked at Takata full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Are there any?
    They dont provide anything better than any other place....they strive to be below average, but you better not!

    Cons

    Long hours and still low pay. Takata has some MAJOR catching up to do to be even close to on par with many other places. It will take YEARS at the rate things are going.
    People are still bailing as fast as they can to escape the plague that becomes this place, and it's been two years now.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people just because they have worked at the company for many years. If they were actually any good, they would be GONE, but instead they become the new untalented and lazy leadership that trains the new hires. Someone needs to hit the reset button at this place!

    I have been working at Takata full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee and tea.
    If you ever get promoted to director level, you may taste some good benefit at last but promotion rarely happens to right people.

    Cons

    Depends on what department you work in, but people in some departments are really miserably working - especially operation and quality. Working overtime and weekend becomes norm, but no rewards.
    There are too many departments in this company. Too many unknown departments (and their team names are confusing), too many directors and too many managers. I'm sure many actual employees don't know what other departments are doing.
    No matter what department you work in, short resource is always an issue. Company can't hire new people because of no budget. Good performers leave as soon as they find a better job. Farewell emails also become norm. Company can't afford hiring new ones, so existing ones (except managers/directors/executives) always suffer too much workload. Managers think anybody is replaceable so they don't treat you right here.
    Obviously company is not doing well and doesn't seem to get any better (actually getting worse and worse every day).
    "Quality First" is such a joke. Very dishonest to not only employees but also customers and consumers who actually drive cars."Sinking ship" is really true to this company.

    Advice to Management

    None. They won't change no matter what.
