    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!
